Webinar: Can a ‘Pandemic Treaty’ Promote Global Health Justice?

Amid contention that global governance was unprepared and incapacitated in its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this November, a special session of the World Health Assembly will convene to discuss a potential international instrument on pandemic preparedness and response.

This final webinar of the ‘International Pandemic Lawmaking: Conceptual and Practical Issues’ Symposium will bring together leading scholars to critically discuss cross-cutting themes of the Symposium, and key points of contention and recommendation for the future of global pandemic governance.
