Socioeconomic Shocks, Inequality and Food Systems

With a view to articulating the effects of socioeconomic shocks in the Global South, Prof Evans Osabuohien led a team of scholars, including Gbadebo Odularu (Bay Atlantic University-BAU, & SERAP, Washington DC, USA), Daniel UFUA (Covenant University, Nigeria), Darline Augustine (City University of New York-CUNY, USA) and Romanus Osabohien (Covenant University, Nigeria) to work on a Special Issue. The Special Issue is titled Socioeconomic Shocks, Inequality and Food Systems in the Global South featured in Contemporary Social Science published by Taylor & Francis.

The scholarly piece offers an in-depth insight on the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on the sustainable development goals. Also, it reviews macroeconomic policy instituted by governments and development partners to boost post-pandemic recovery. In addition, it provides an opportunity to underscore the challenges across various critical sectors and countries in the Global South. In sum, the Special Issue responds to the need for comprehensive documentation of national governments’ policies in the Global South.
