The Fundación “la Caixa” Chair in Economics and Society presents a new cycle of reflection and debate at CaixaForum Madrid, which aims to explore the relevant issues of our time from a humanistic, social and economic perspective.
From tomorrow until 2 December, at 7.30 pm, the doors of the cultural centre will be open to receive renowned academics from our country, who will cover topics such as climate change, Judeophobia and anti-Semitism; Spain’s presence in the EU; the intergenerational dimension of inequality in our society, and elementary passions and their social uses. The series will be opened tomorrow at 19:30 with the virtual conference Crisis of the Coronavirus: a radical change in the world order, by Shlomo Ben Ami, Vice-President of the Toledo International Centre for Peace. Ben Ami will analyse the change that the pandemic crisis will bring about on a global scale, comparing it with the “Spanish flu” that struck our country in the 14th century. For his part, Emilio Cassinello, Director General of the Toledo International Centre for Peace and Spanish Ambassador, will be responsible for presenting and introducing the event.
