Special Issue: “COVID and Capitalism”

Special Issue Collective: Sara Cantillon*, Elif Karaçimen*, Lawrence King, David Kotz*, Jeff Powell, Juan Santarcángelo*, Nuno Teles [*RRPE Editorial Board Member]

Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic has not only shown inherent flaws in the capitalist system but also deepened them. It has had major political-economic effects around the world. Millions of people have lost their jobs, the number of people living in extreme poverty has grown substantially, and the already heavy burden of unpaid work borne by women has increased. At the same time, the wealth of the ten richest billionaires doubled since the start of the pandemic.

We are looking for articles that provide radical political economic analysis of the pandemic. A list of possible subjects for the special issue, along with submission and contact details, can be found in the full Call for Papers pdf file.

If you intend to submit a paper, or have questions, please contact Elif Karaçimen as soon as possible elifkaracimen@gmail.com

All submissions undergo RRPE’s regular peer review procedures and must not be under review with any other publication. Submissions must conform to the Instructions to Contributors listed on the RRPE website, or available from the Managing Editor, editor.rrpe@urpe.org.
