The COVID-19 crisis is having a profound effect on the welfare, wellbeing and health of academics and students around the world. Funded by the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) a survey has been designed by an international team of researchers to capture the perspectives of academics, working in every country context, on the continuing challenges posed by this global crisis. Dr Fiona McGaughey from the UWA Law School is the Australian representative on the study.
