The CHR is delighted to announce the publication of honours fellow, Kiasha Naidoo’s latest journal article “ Neoliberalism’s last breath: thinking politico-economic well-being during and beyond COVID-19” in Revista de Filosofie Aplicată.
Kiasha Naidoo writes:
“The failure of neoliberalism to both embody and deliver on its promise of maximised well-being is due to its unstable and paradoxical foundations, which have become even clearer in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. This article is a consideration of how the underlying principles of individualism and meritocracy form a model which is overly simplistic and thus cannot provide a justificatory framework for the action required during COVID-19 to recover the possibility of individual and social well-being.”
