L' architecture collective des solidarités à l’épreuve de la COVID-19

  • Sylvain A. Lefèvre UQAM

Abstract

The current COVID-19 health crisis challenges our healthcare and economic systems, as well as the structure or our social connections, the building blocks of our society. The parallels that can be made with the beginning of the 20th century's public health period are eye-opening in better understanding the link between philanthropic dynamics and public regulations. As always, the emergence of a health crisis and economic depression lead us to consider the value of life and the cost of death. How are we to make these collective choices for the now, while also considering "the world of after," in a confined democracy?
