  Add to Calendar 2020-06-15 17:00 2020-06-15 18:00 Europe/Paris #FlorenceLive webcast: conversations on the post-Corona world and migration

The COVID-19 pandemic has already profoundly changed how we live and work, and how the world is organised. To understand these changes and help navigate a post-Corona world, the European University Institute (EUI) School of Transnational Governance (STG) presents a webcast series of conversations and interviews with academics and high-level policy-makers. The experts will discuss social, economic and political issues relating to the new global environment from a transnational perspective, blending academic and policy analysis.

The webcasts will consist of one-hour livestreamed panel discussions every Monday on the implications of COVID-19 on: democracy; state vs. market; climate; digital; migration; the emerging world; geopolitics. In addition, interviews with high-level policymakers will be organised according at the availability of participants. 

This webcast will address the post-Corona world and migration, by examining the questions such as:

  • What are the implications of COVID-19 for migration flows and asylum?
  • Is it the end of Schengen as we know it? 

The event will be livestreamed. To participate in the conversation, post your comments and questions in the comment feed below the video.
