Value is one of the six themes we have set to consider in thinking about the “Corona Crisis” and the future world. Experts from the discipline will discuss this theme in a round table.

Looking back over the course of human history, going through an infectious disease crisis has always forced us to reflect on our values. This is because infectious diseases expose various issues that we were already aware of but which we had been unable to tackle, and question how we should structure a new society and its decision-making processes, and how to deepen our appreciation of the value of human life. We would like to take this opportunity to consider these issues together, through the bubonic plague of the 17th century, the world wars and “Spanish flu” of the 20th century, and the current covid-19 crisis.
