Hi! We hope that you're safe and well🌈
A word from the President of the ISW-SWE, Antonella Cagnolati
The days we are living are tragically unprecedented and shared by the whole world. We are all equal, all vulnerable, but the - ''already vulnerable'' are even more so.
It is in such moments, when uncertainty, distress, and precariousness invite themselves into our lives, and especially into the lives of the most deprived, that we are determined to be present and to continue to act within the limits imposed by circumstances.
We commit ourselves to do so by adapting to the "during the crisis", but also to prepare ourselves for the "after the crisis" which will require from us a redoubled presence, and responses adapted to the societal changes that will occur because the world will never be the same again...
Like many of our partners and despite the effects of the crisis, we remain committed to our mission. The nature of our work does not change, and it is taking on a renewed meaning, as the last few weeks have reminded us all with violence and pain of the importance of human rights, solidarity, citizenship, and respect for others.
Our teams are working remotely and are mobilized to continue their activities. This crisis presents very particular challenges but also opportunities for all, particularly through changes in working and communication methods. But despite this, we are determined to pursue and strengthen our mission, demonstrating flexibility and agility.
