transform! yearbook 2022 looks at how left politics has been challenged by the Covid pandemic and asks what a programme of left demands for pandemic research, prevention and treatment might look like.
There have been great changes over the last thirty years: the collapse of the Eastern Bloc, triumphant neoliberalism, the rise of China as an economic power, transform! yearbook 2022 asks what are the resulting geopolitical shifts behind the war in Ukraine? Also, what are the new imperatives for public intervention in the economy; the emergence of social democracy in the US, and what are the structural difficulties for any left politics face in the EU?
This year’s transform! yearbook addresses the following themes:
- The Covid Pandemic and the Left
- War and Peace in the Changing World System
- The Marxist-Christian Dialogue
- A Democratic Europe?
- Social Democracy, the Radical Left in the Face of the Socio-Ecological Crisis
