Fighting Back: Lessons Learned from Ghana’s Battle Against COVID-19

23 de julho, 2020

Ghana’s government reacted quickly and practically to the pandemic, an approach that can serve as an example in the exchange of lessons learned between states. The country undertook a timely closure of borders, targeted lockdowns in epicenters, and enhanced contact tracing. This was made possible by allowing experts to lead the discussions and by taking into account local factors and developments.

Police Brutality in Brazil: A State of War?

20 de julho, 2020

Brazil’s government attempts to legalize extrajudicial killings by the police, legitimizing them with the ‘war on drugs.’ Leaders in the international community should instead encourage the Brazilian government to address the systemic inequality fueling drug-related crimes rather than perpetrate violence against its citizens.

Sharing But Not Caring?

22 de junho, 2020 Politique économique

Renting, repairing and redistributing instead of hyper-consumption and ownership-the sharing economy seems to revolutionize market capitalism. But can the sharing economy really be a sustainable alternative to market capitalism and create a new socio-economic system for the 21st century? Or is it just another neoliberal experiment in disguise, creating ever more powerful platform owners and disempowered workers?
