Due to the Corona pandemic, many KAAD network events have been cancelled both in Germany and worldwide. Many of us have been affected and still bear the impact of national “lockdowns” or “confinements”. What this means for the societies of countries in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia is much less covered in the international media than it is the case with Western European countries and the USA. But it is not only in the countries with huge numbers of infected and dead people that the economy and society are massively impaired. We want to find out from scholars and alumni from different countries and regions of the world in which way this global crisis influences your everyday life, your society and your economy.
The Alumni of the KAAD partner country Uganda came up with the idea and started a “Call for Contributions”. The chairlady of KASEA Uganda then received contributions which we have first published here on the KAAD webpage. Further scholarship holders and alumni from other countries also followed this call; their contributions can also be found here.
