This book represents a way of acknowledging an improved pandemic-free and prosperous environment for everyone in the future were society does not leave behind any poor or marginalized individuals. Transgender, underprivileged migrant workers, female workers, indigenous communities, and other marginalized groups and their right to life and their livelihoods must be supported as universally enshrined in the UN Declaration Human Rights and the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

A particular group at risk during the current times is the Indigenous communities around the world who are at high risk because of their generational struggles. The disadvantaged population is overwhelmed by deprivation, inequality, unemployment, and infections, both communicable and non-communicable, which make them more vulnerable to COVID 19 and its negative consequences. So, this in brief involves a failure to obtain an admirable political representation, marginalization, and lack of access to health, education, and social services.

The question becomes how will marginalized people face these coming days? From migrant workers, to transgender individuals, to indigenous peoples, this book will talk about everything from state policies to philosophical insight for the marginal people and COVID-19’s impact. Not only will there be informed conceptual discussions about marginalized groups but also practice insights for moving forward for the marginal people.

The book is a splendid representation of the voice of the marginal people in the new normal attempting to draw on a comprehensive knowledge bank, which included anthropology, sociology, gender studies, media, education, indigenous dimension, philosophy, bioethics, care ethics, and Asian philosophy. This volume, to the best of our knowledge, solely devotes to the marginal people, examines the oppressed communities in depth, and provides insights on how we should stand by these vulnerable people.
