Regional Responses to Covid-19
March 4, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The global response to Covid-19 has occured across multiple levels of governance: from community-led initiatives to international coordination by the World Health Organisation (WHO). While there has been significant analysis of responses at the state and international level, there has been less coverage of regional responses. Regional organisations can be a crucial level of governance when addressing cross-border threats and challenges from violent conflict to climate change. Regional governance can complement domestic policy actions, and it can provide a collective voice on the international stage to advocate for region-specific concerns.
This event will examine regional responses to the pandemic and present early insights into findings from a forthcoming report outlining responses in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. Dr Kathryn Nash will examine the African Union’s response and ongoing efforts to continue with the peace and security agenda amidst the pandemic. Hannah den Boer will examine regional responses in Latin America and the Middle East.
Dr Kathryn Nash is a postdoctoral research fellow with the Political Settlements Research Program (PRSP).
Hannah den Boer is a Research Assistant with the Political Settlements Research Program (PRSP).
The event will consist of a panel discussion followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience.
