LUMS LIVE SESSION 18

Democracy and the Pandemic

Panelists: Aasim Sajjad (AWP), Shandana Khan Mohmand (IDS and MHRC), Sameen Mohsin (LUMS and MHRC), Ammar Rashid (AWP), Umair Javed (LUMS and MHRC).

There is significant variation in public health interventions carried out by states across the world, and varying success rates in terms of managing public health and socio-economic consequences of the pandemic. This webinar highlights how each state’s response to COVID-19 is linked to its political and institutional nature, and to the demands citizens make of it. Panelists analyse the long term political economy impacts of the pandemic and trace these to deeply embedded historical social and political inequalities.
