This special issue of Cosmopolitan Civil Societies addresses the question of how individuals, communities or  countries have released new dynamics of sociality and social solidarity as well as new marginalisations as they face Covid-19. It raises the importance of the local, while hinting at new forms of globalisation. The papers published here give insights into the situations and concerns in countries not often presented together. We acknowledge the important work being done by the authors of these papers and by others concerned with these significant issues.
