WEBINAR 2: “Democracy and Disruption”

Thursday, 13 May 2021 | 08:00 – 09.30 BST / 09.00 – 10.30 CEST

How has democracy been impacted by over a year of pandemic response and emergency? How have states ensured the democratic accountability of their actions in response to the global health emergency? What lessons can be learned for now, and for the future? This panel examines democratic practices, and highlights the best – and most concerning – developments.

The panel will consist of short interventions by each speaker, followed by a moderated Q&A session. Tweet your questions with #PowerandPandemic.
