Rafal Soborski’s essay about the politics of COVID-19 published by global-e

Rafal Soborski, Professor of International Politics at Richmond, has just published an essay in global-e journal hosted by the 21st Century Global Dynamics Initiative at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The essay, titled “Populism or Neoliberalism? Explaining the Politics of the Pandemic” can be found here.

In the essay, Dr Soborski comments:

To understand what is the best way of facing up to COVID-19 it is vital to concentrate on the impact of neoliberalism. The current crisis exposes the neoliberal system’s reckless and oppressive nature. Hopefully it will also provide an opportunity for a collective reconsideration of our values and priorities.
