The 4th NKL Annual Conference. Life, knowledge and democracy during COVID-19.

December the 7th, 2020, 9:00

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world. Which ones of these changes are here to stay, and what a post-COVID-19 world should look like, is the subject of much debate?  Is the pandemic a threat to democracy, as more people long for a “strong leader” in times of crisis? And what does it say about the state of our democracies pre-COVID-19 that the most vulnerable are hit the hardest? Moreover, is the pandemic strengthening solidarity bonds, or does it lead to a greater fragmentation and polarization within and across countries? What role do digital practices play in these processes?

Those are some questions for debate in the 4th NKL Annual Conference “Life, knowledge and democracy during COVID-19”.

This event is organized in the framework of the Navigating Knowledge Landscape research network in coordination with the H2020 project PANELFIT next December 7, 2020.
