Project Someone Director, Vivek Venkatesh, and a multidisciplinary team of researchers from Concordia, McGill and the University of Ottawa recently published two articles examining the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on minorities and marginalized communities.

Led by McGill University professor, CSLP member and Project Someone collaborator, Cécile Rousseau, the studies also examine the link between heightened racism during the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on mental health.  

Both articles appear in the International Journal of Intercultural Relations (IJIR) and BJPsych Open.
