This conference aims to give an overview of the mutations incurred by social ties within the last five years of economic crisis. Spain and Greece, so far the countries most hit by the recession, represent interesting case-studies to explore the creative potential of these mutations, both in social and environmental terms.
What can social cohesion become in times of prolonged recession? How are we to respond to deteriorated social ties? What forms of violence can it cause? Conversely, what types of resistance and creativity can it create? All these questions will be addressed within three different panels on social cohesion, ecological economics and social resistance to the crisis.
