New Op-ed by Olga Zeveleva in Novaya Gazeta on COVID-19 in prison systems around the world

Dr. Olga Zeveleva has summarized her study on responses to COVID-19 in prison systems around the world in a media article published by the prominent Russian-language news outlet Novaya Gazeta. In the article, titled “Carceral Pandemic: How prison systems in different countries are reacting to the COVID-19 threat,” she argues that we cannot view prisons as remote spaces removed from the “rest” of society, and that in the current pandemic there is no such thing as “prison health” – there is simply public health. You can find the blog post that presents the findings and methods she drew on for the media article on the Gulag Echoes blog
