Das Zentrum Marc Bloch organisiert im Rahmen der Online-Reihe „Systemrelevant? Was die Krise mit unserer Gesellschaft macht. Deutsch-französische und europäische Perspektiven“ die Veranstaltung: „Regional Contexts of Global Crisis: The Politics of Covid-19 in East Central Europe“. Dieses Webinar findet am Montag, den 25. Mai ab 10 Uhr (via Zoom) mit Balázs Trencsényi (Central European University/Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin/Centre Marc Bloch) statt. Ein Gespräch wird mit Marc Lazar (Sciences Po Paris) und Leyla Dakhli (CMB / ERC DREAM) statt finden.

Zusammenfassung auf Englisch : While the scholarly debate has been focusing on the previously unfathomed controlling mechanisms and technologies emerging in the context of the global crisis management, one should not forget about the functioning of more „conventional” institutions and mechanisms of power such as federal and municipal administrations, parliaments, courts, etc. Seeking to generate further discussion, this position paper seeks to give a short overview of the politics of COVID-19 in East Central Europe, with a special focus on Hungary, where some of the most contested measures were implemented as a reaction to the pandemic.
