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 being addressed. In Global Governance Spotlight 2|2021, Hanna Kienzler and Barbara Prainsack argue that current global responses to the pandemic are far from being genuine solidarity. They explain what genuine solidarity means and how it would enable a more effective pandemic response.
