當新冠肺炎肆虐全球,台灣卻因其有效之應對和疾病治理能力而常成為討論焦點。然而,這場疫情及各種防疫措施對不同人群其實產生了程度且情況不一的影響。在此脈絡中,國家邊界管制、國際衛生合作、跨國社會運動等發展,都值得我們細細審視和反思。
因此,這場討論會希望提供跨領域的視角,從「連帶/團結」的角度,討論在地及全球層次上對新冠肺炎的治理。其中,楊雅雯博士將檢視領土、公民資格和共同體之定義與實踐,及其對移民/工的影響。吳易叡博士將以「台灣能幫忙」的倡議為例,探討國際衛生之規範、外交和戰略等考量。劉文博士則透過疫情中延燒的「黑命關天」運動,探討跨國界行動與交織性思考的重要性。

While the COVID pandemic affects almost all parts of the world, Taiwan has been a reference point concerning its effective response and disease governance. The pandemic and the measures to contain it have however influenced different groups of people in various ways and to various degrees. It is in this context that the issues ranging from national border control to international health cooperation and transnational social movement deserve scrutiny and a better understanding.
Thus, this roundtable aims to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on COVID governance in relation to the ‘solidarity’ discourse on both the local and global levels. Dr Yawen Yang will examine the definitions and practices with regard to territory, citizenship, and community and their impact on migrants. Dr Harry Yi-Jui Wu will consider the normative, diplomatic, and strategic concerns of international health particularly drawing on the #TaiwanCanHelp campaign. Dr Wen Liu will explore the importance of transnational and intersectional activism while witnessing the #BlackLivesMatter movement during the pandemic moment.
