This virtual paper session explores the spatial impact of public policies. Papers investigate policies intended to monitor and reduce domestic violence during the COVID-19 pandemic; war on terror conflation of health and militarism; and, historical relationships between militarism and development. Presenters examine gendered and raced discourse, as well as caregiving, disease vulnerability, white fragility, Islamophobia, fear of bioterrorism, participation of public health in biodefense, and the impact of gendered securitization on women.
