All around Europe

In these extraordinary times, the Viadrina Institute for European Studies (IFES) would like to offer the IFES COVID19 blog as a platform to share analyses of the current crisis as well as reading recommendations.

 In the latest article, Estela Schindel explains why nothing is more political than dealing with the pandemic, following Giorgio Agamben and Michel Foucault. The analysis arose as a contradiction to Ulrike Guérot's guest contribution on Deutschlandfunk Kultur.
