8 June 2020

COVID-19 challenges us at every level, for it forces us to question our status quo, our way of living and our assumptions. This week, we explore the experience we all faced through a new spectrum: Recover. How can we recover individually after mourning, a trauma, a deprivation of freedom or a lack of human contact? How will societies recover, what will be the role of the State? The crisis has highlighted socio-economic and gender inequalities in particular: can we all recover in the same way?
