Call for Papers: Surviving Covid-19 on the Margins. The Program on Resilient Communities at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) has been learning from communities in the Philippines since 2017 with a focus on disaster preparedness and climate change. Communities that are marginalized and/or live in fragile spaces (environmental and social fragility) are at greater risk of the impacts of climate change and disaster. This vulnerability has increased as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This knowledge challenges us to continue to expand our area of expertise and also find partners who can help us engage with these marginalized communities and represent their specific needs.

Researchers and authors are invited to submit papers on the experience of any marginalized or vulnerable communities in the Philippines during the pandemic. Furthermore, authors will get a chance to present their papers at a virtual symposium hosted by the HHI in October 2021.


Each paper must focus on the COVID-19 pandemic experience of any marginalized or vulnerable communities in the Philippines. These communities include but are not limited to

  • The Lumad or other indigenous communities
  • Coastal and remote communities
  • The elderly
  • Persons with disabilities (PWDs)
  • LGBTQ+ populations
  • Communities living in poverty

Each paper must be an original analysis and must be the author’s own work. Papers previously published are not eligible.


Must be any of the following

  • Current graduate students at the masters or PhD level, preferably affiliated with universities in the Philippines
    Scholars with a doctorate / PhD degree.
  • University/college faculty doing research on these subjects, with a special preference for junior faculty.
  • Moreover, preference is given to authors who are of Filipino descent or are affiliated with Philippine universities. Papers written by more than one author are permitted.

Length and Formatting
