Towards a just transition for all: Lessons from the pandemic

This article focuses on the possibility of “just transition” in the health sector following the COVID-19 pandemic. Analysing just transition from two aspects, breadth and depth, the authors look at the current situation in the United States to argue that all transitions should be just, and that when they are unjust, transitions, regardless of sector or region, breed resentment and nativism, resulting in opposition to any kind of structural change.
