The Erasmus Journal for Philosophy and Economics invites submissions for a forthcoming special issue devoted to the challenges posed by global pandemics, in general, and by the Covid–19 pandemic, in particular.

They invite submissions from the following broad categories of possible (but non-exhaustive) questions:

  • Methodology of economics: How do the assumptions underlying epidemiological models, on the one hand, and economic models, on the other, differ? What explains the seeming differences—in predictions, optimism, etc.—among experts in various relevant fields, from epidemiology to economics; and what can disciplines learn from each other’s modelling strategies?
  • Ethics and political philosophy: How should moral trade-offs—such as between well-being, freedom and life duration—that pandemic management strategies give rise to be identified and resolved? What kind of issues of global justice does a global pandemic give rise to?
  • Public policy and decision theory: What kind of duties and responsibilities do citizens have during a pandemic? What kind of principles could legitimise the balancing between individual rights and liberties, on the one hand, and (private and public) welfare, on the other? How should the various types of risks and uncertainties regarding pandemics and management strategies be properly taken into account?
  • While naturally our—like everyone’s—immediate attention is focused on the Covid–19 pandemic, we very much welcome texts that draw lessons from past pandemics for the challenges we currently face.

Extensión de las contribuciones: 2.000–4.000 palabras.
