After the Pandemic: Some Social, Political and Economic Impacts

Date and time: Thursday, June 4, 2020 at 10 a.m.

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues its relentless path across the world, politicians, policy makers and pundits have begun thinking of the world that comes after. What are likely to be the short, medium and long-term impacts on society resulting from Covid-19? How will it change the economy, politics and society at large? Which of these will be temporary and which more permanent?

This talk will explore some of these possible changes and the policy changes that should be considered as a result.
