New blog-post: « Avoir faim en Suisse : Les dispositifs alimentaires à Genève et à Fribourg au temps de la Covid-19 »

You can find our latest publication at this address, on the online journal Co-Vies20 which offers "stories and analysis in the times of lockdown". It is a French version of a blog entry published on Pat Caplan's blog recently, augmented and amended with new information related to current events.

"After a deafening silence since mid-April, the situation of the poorest people in Switzerland and Geneva in particular has finally caught the attention of the media and the public. Among the 150 press articles consulted so far, about thirty concern people in a state of precarity. Another novelty is that these articles deal directly with precariousness and poverty, and not indirectly as before, wich too often came from the ecological framework of food recycling - an angle that tended to make the poorest invisible."
