Newsletter 12 March 2020

Dear readers,

our current newsletter, focusing on the Climate Crisis and the Green New Deal, offers a number of analyses, articles and epublications, examining this issue from various perspectives. In addition, it provides information on related upcoming international conferences.

Regarding the immediate, pressing health crisis, we would like to draw your attention to a key aspect of it, which up to now has rarely been addressed: the connection between the spread of the coronavirus and the impact of neoliberal policies on the national healthcare systems, with Italy as an example.

Finally, we are happy to announce the upcoming release of this year’s transform! yearbook.

We wish you stimulating reading!
