    Given that up to 120 global governments are urging their citizens to wear masks whenever possible, it is natural to inquire how effective they really are in stopping the spread of SARS-CoV-2 (and other such pathogens). In this essay Milind explores how the various common types of mask work before discussing their efficacy and effectiveness in a wider setting.

    In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been considerable focus on the fragility of global supply chains and the possibility of ‘slowbalisation,’ a term coined by Dutch writer Adjiedj Bakas referring to a “slowdown in global trade.” Through the use of ecomonic theory and empirical data, Harry assesses why the events of the last three years have not only disproven the ostensible inevitability of globalisation but have entailed a drastic reversal of globalisation, from an economic perspective.

    The Oxford English dictionary describes a stereotype as “a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing”. The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story. Almost all of us stereotype, whether it be consciously or subconsciously, in one way or another, on a daily basis.
