Providing new empirical examples and developing theoretical discussions from contexts around the globe this edited collection is an important contribution to further discussion on a vital, but understudied issue.
The online event launching the book and exploring faith based health justice extends its concerns to the era of the newest pandemic. This event gathers academics and practitioners to share knowledge and reflect and build on the findings presented in the book.
This event provides the opportunity to listen to authors from the volume from a wide variety of contexts presenting their research, as well as comments and reflections from other international experts in the field.
Through an understanding of faith based health justice, which has now entered the era of a global pandemic, speakers will explore reflections on the health traumas we are witnessing and the opportunities such a rupture creates for transforming fragile and fragmented forms of health justice from a faith based lens. This event aims to start a discussion to continue developing the themes from the book in ways that look forward to repairing and regrowing our global health and transforming trauma to justice.
