On Wednesday, June the 3rd , at 5 pm, the Digital Talk of the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO entitled “Politics, Society and Economy: a Relationship to Reconsidered?” will be held online. This webinar is included in the cycle of events organized by the University in the online mode, based on a weekly schedule, streamed live on the website and on the Facebook page of the University to think about the Covid-19 post-emergency period.
Actually, this initiative, will be an occasion for reflecting on the effects that the measures adopted to face the Covid-19 pandemic caused on society and on those processes and contradictions that, fueled by insecurity, fear and by a renewed willingness to grant increasing derogations as opposed to the fundamental principles on which constitutional democracies rely, will inevitably lead toward a reformulation of the relationships among politics, society and economy.
The event is introduced and moderated by Prof. Fabio Giuseppe Angelini, Contract Professor of Administrative Law at UNINETTUNO. Among the speakers: Prof. Martin Schalg, Professor of Business Ethics and Catholic Social Thought at the St. Thomas University (Minnesota, USA), Prof. Antonio Campati, researcher in Political Philosophy at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore and Prof. Markus Krienke, Professor of Modern Philosophy and Social Ethics at the Faculty of Theology at the University of Lugano.
"Thanks to this cycle of Digital Talks, our commitment in promoting reflection on the consequences that the current emergency time produces on our society, on the economic, social and human context, goes on.” UNINETTUNO’s Rector, Prof. Maria Amata Garito, stated.
“The spreading of the health emergency opened unprecedented political, economic and social scenarios, hardly imaginable just a few months ago, both in terms of extent and global scope.” Prof. Angelini stated. "In these latest months – he goes on – our habits, our way of interacting with others, our mindsets and, ultimately, our hopes for the future have been changing. This last one appears full of uncertainties as well as full of potential short-circuits as regards the balance between the value of social security and of personal liberty. These events, jointly with the well-known lack in our societies of safe antibodies capable of protecting the hard-won conquests of liberties of the last Century, threatened by an economic and technological power that, even if taking benign forms, makes its way in our lives in a more and more overwhelmingly way, promise to result into evolutionary processes that will have a deep impact on the relationships among politics, economy and society.”
