Experience of COVID-19 pandemic has been revealing many issues to be solved in the globalized world of today. In this symposium, we share information about what problems happen in research fields of our five research units in the Sophia Institute for Human Security: poverty, environment, health care, immigrants and refugees, and peacebuilding.
