In times of the Corona crisis, solidarity is a common word. At the same time, however, the question arises as to how sustainable this boom will be and what a “post-Covid” future of solidarity might look like.
This was the topic of the digital kick-off event of the “Frankfurt Interdisciplinary Live Debate” on May 12. Nicole Deitelhoff (PRIF), Stefanie Dimmeler (CPI), Rainer Forst and Klaus Günther (Normative Orders) as well as Jan Pieter Krahnen (Leibniz Institute for Financial Market Research SAFE) discussed with hr journalist Doris Renck among other things “internal solidarity” and the distinction between solidarity and self-interest.
The series of panel discussions will continue through the summer months.
