Diaconal practice in corona times.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademic


The covid 19 crisis strongly affected groups who already have a bigger chance to be confronted with poverty and exclusion. What did it mean to their ways of survival and their fragile networks as the Covid 19 pandemic came along? And how did diaconal organizations reaching out to these groups reacted to this? What can we
learn from their experiences about the Good Life in our society? This paper explores this question from a diaconal theological perspective. It is based on interviews with leading staff members of diaconal organizations in the Netherlands during the first, second and fourth wave of Corona.
