As vaccines allow a gradual return to a “new normal”, this book offers an invitation to collectively reflect on the crucial relationship between democracy and health in the context of the COVID-19 health crisis. It is an invitation to discuss the effects of the pandemic and its related policy measures, to reflect on democracy, social inequalities and fundamental rights.
Each chapter speaks from a local perspective, acting as a cardinal point and a symbolic testimony to the transnationality of the crisis. Each author discusses one of the following topics with scientific data and arguments: Social inequalities and health; Individual security and freedom; Politics and technocracy; Health and democracy.
This publication complements workshops, training seminars, conferences, organised by the Fondazione Socialismo and which have strengthened an online community and continue to work autonomously on these issues.
