IN FOCUS

Race and Inequality

Global protests over the death of an unarmed black man in police custody in Minnesota coupled with the coronavirus have exposed the deep inequalities faced by many black men and women around the world.

We examine how racial inequality intersects with climate change, health, housing, technology, livelihoods and business.

We want to hear from you: what critical stories and perspectives are missing from our coverage of systemic racism around the world?

Your responses in this short survey will help shape our reporting.
