An online event on "COVID vaccine and anti-vaccination movement: Epistemological and political dimensions", is organized by the Friends of Thessaloniki Group of the Nikos Poulantzas Institute on Tuesday, September 21 at 19:00. The aim of the event is to identify the elements that make up and reinforce both the attitude of hesitation and the current of denial in vaccines.

According to the organizers, the speakers will try to answer the major question what motivates and directs citizens passionately against vaccination. Also on questions such as:

  • What are the particular social and political characteristics of the anti-vaccination movement?
  • The role of science and the expert has been at the heart of the current health crisis. But what is the position of science today when it is on the one hand being instrumentalized by politics and on the other hand being experienced as part of the elite and being challenged by a quasi-anti-system?
  • Finally, both the government and the media are criticized for failing to develop a successful persuasion strategy for the population and for failing to organize a structured and sober public debate on the issue of vaccination. What is the data about COVID-19 vaccines and how does one talk about them in a public sphere open to manipulation or misinformation on the one hand and with a part of the population having a well-established attitude towards vaccination?

The event includes:

  • Grigoris Gerotziafas, Professor of Hematology, Director of iNSERM, Sorbonne University
  • Dimitra Dimitrakopoulou, Assistant Professor, Department of Journalism and Mass Media, AUTh, Visiting Professor at MIT Media Lab
  • Manolis Patiniotis, Professor of History of Science, Department of Sociology, EKPA
  • Aris Hadjistefanou, Journalist "Journal of the Editors", documentary director.
  • Coordinates Eleni Bella, Dr. Medicine, field doctor in the refugee (Philos II).

The event will take place through ZOOM and will be broadcast live on the page of the Friends of Thessaloniki Group of the Nikos Poulantzas Institute on Facebook:
