An economy of care is first and foremost an economy that ensures the basic provisions of a country and its people, an economy that has power over itself and that breaks down the most serious of dependencies, those that make countries, regions and people - that is, communities - vulnerable. It is therefore the whole economy and not just certain areas of society, such as the so-called third sector or the branches of personal care. We talk, of course, about political economy. Fourth session of the «Deconfined Talks» debate series.

The open access «Deconfined Talks» seminars focus on the pandemic, its implications on the multiple dimensions that concern the CES community, among others topics currently worth discussing.
