Call for the creation of the research network POSOC-19 (POwers and SOcieties facing the Covid-19 Crisis)

Two professors from ULB and Aix-Marseille have launched an initiative to study the impact of the COVID-19 crisis from the point of view of social sciences and giving priority to a comparative perspective.

To this purpose, they are building the POSOC-19 network, which aims to be an open and collaborative network fostering synergies, exchange and sharing among scientists in the social, political and legal sciences from different countries.
