Issued on


centre for global education

Deadline for submissions: 17 December 2021

Contributors could consider, through empirical work or theoretical discussion the following: 

  • President Michael D Higgins has suggested that ‘the role of the state in society will be re-evaluated’ in the wake of COVID-19.  What does that mean in the context of healthcare? 
  • What are the implications of COVID-19 for global health and how can health assets of global importance such as the vaccines be made accessible to poor countries? 
  • How can we create a healthcare system as a public good with universal access for all at the point of delivery?  What lessons can be learned from the pandemic?
  • What are the synergies between health education and development education?  How can DE widen the debate on health?
  • What can we learn about healthcare from the global South?  Are their case studies of good practice that can be incorporated into DE practice?
  • How can DE foster health solidarity and a sharing of practice between the global North and South?
  • What is the cause of COVID-19 and how do we prevent future pandemics?
