    The state and the current crisis, in "The state, crime, prisons and the police"

    The state and the current crisis, in "The state, crime, prisons and the police"

    The state has undergone a lot of change in the last 100 years and since the partial or full lock down in many countries driven by the spread of Covid-19, we have seen an increase in its powers both in Britain and internationally. What has neoliberalism meant for the role of the state? Are we now more prepared for greater state intervention in the economy and into our lives? And how should we think about the state in the context of the Black Lives Matter movement?

    Intro to "The state and the current crisis" by Kate, part 5 of 5 in the series of meetings "The state, crime, prisons and the police". Upcoming meetings and more: https://workersliberty.org/c19-online
