International Conference on Social And Regional Resilience: Looking Through The Pandemic Lens by TISS

Date: Dec. 14, 2022 – Dec. 16, 2022 

Venue: TISS, Campus, Mumbai

Human history has been punctuated by pandemics. From the ‘Plague of
Justinian’ in 415-549, the ‘black death’ in 1346-1353, to the ‘Spanish flu’ in
1918-1920, pandemics have had devastating consequences for health,
travel, and economy, for societies. The scourge of COVID-19, which arose
from China in the last quarter of 2019, has emerged as one of the major
pandemics of the 21st century affecting approximately 595 million persons
till August 2022 and causing death of about 6.5 million individuals across
countries of the world. The exact estimates of the human toll of the
pandemic are yet to be determined. The contagion has had deep regional
socioeconomic and health impacts, devastating the economic and social
life of several countries. Covid-19 put the brakes on the rapid globalization
of the world, impacting physical and social interactions between people
and countries.

The 53rd Annual International Conference of RSA focuses on the impacts
of COVID-19 on individuals, communities, societies embedded in different

  • Approaches towards building resilient communities in urban, rural,
    regional, or local subsystems.
