The ethics of solidarity, community and care
4 June 2020, 10:00 to 11:30 Please note: this event has passed
Covid-19 has once again reminded us the ways in which global crises challenges our abilities to manage our own security and economies. Colleagues working in international relations and ethics research have documented how pandemics, environmental and financial global crises illuminate the inabilities of states to manage these international challenges alone. They also highlight the broader social and structural inequalities with certain communities taking on more risk than others. While we see borders closing, greater isolation and communities shutting off, we also see increased solidarity, care and community cohesion within state boundaries and transnationally.
Our video screening and panel will highlight and consequently draw upon how we might (re)imagine a different political and social future post pandemic. We invite you to watch our compilation of short videos exploring what care, ethics, solidarity and community mean to our researchers in their work and everyday lives, followed by a “meet the contributors” interactive panel whereby we further engage with these important discussions.
