For its 5th edition in Taiwan, the Night of Ideas invites us all this year to explore together the forms of resilience and the possible reconstructions of societies confronted with singular challenges, the solidarity and cooperation between individuals, groups and States, the mobilisation of civil societies and the stakes of a (re)construction.

In a world paralysed by the pandemic, marked by the closure of borders and the generalisation of tracking devices, crucial questions arise about borders, the role of civil society and citizens' rights.

On the programme of the Night of Ideas organised this Thursday 27 January at C-Lab from 6.30 p.m., meetings between experts and discussion circles in which you are invited to take part to debate the redefinition of a post COVID-19 world.
