Politics in Times of COVID-19 – Responding to Radical Uncertainty is the first event of the 2020/21 series and takes place on 7 October, from 15.00 – 16.15, via Microsoft Teams.
The online panel will examine three core aspects of the politics of COVID-19: the comparative politics of government responses to the pandemic, citizen responses to the crisis and the expected effects on our economies.
Ramon Pacheco Pardo (KCL) will speak about the lessons that can be learnt from East Asian government responses to this and past pandemics. The region has built powerful public health and healthcare infrastructures which have helped them respond more effectively to COVID-19.
Christel Koop (KCL) will present the findings of a survey on Covid-19-related public attitudes and policy preferences in the UK and the US.
Joseph Baines (KCL) presents work which examines how the COVID pandemic might exacerbate existing trends towards concentration among US corporations in the context of growing corporate indebtedness.
