Webinar: Coronavirus Politics

Leben mit Corona

In many countries, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the government to take decisive steps to counter the epidemiological surge of infections, and then to save the economy from collapse. Despite national news media regularly refer to other countries, and despite of important transnational projects such as the “Oxford Supertracker”, a comprehensive understanding is lacking – both of how countries reacted to the pandemic and the economic as well as social fallout, and why the impact appear to be so different. While a full analysis is probably still missing for quite some time, first results from comparative analysis yield interesting insights on those questions.

This edition of our “Leben mit Corona” Webinar series goes European: with two presentations based on comparative papers from a recent volume, “Coronavirus Politics”, taking a refreshing perspective on why countries fared so differently – and why these results are nonetheless preliminary.
