Solidarity is one of the most over-used terms in the Covid-19 pandemic. In many cases, the term solidarity is mentioned but not followed by any substantive action. Power differentials and inequities are thereby merely papered over instead of addressed. In Global Governance Spotlight 2|2021, Hanna Kienzler and Barbara Prainsack argue that current global responses to the pandemic are far from genuine solidarity. They explain what genuine solidarity means and how it would allow for a more effective pandemic response.
