  Add to Calendar 2020-06-22 15:00 2020-06-22 16:00 Europe/Paris #FlorenceLive webcast: conversations on the post-Corona world and Africa

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 afternoon 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 Africa, by examining the questions such as:

  • What will be the human and economic impact of the pandemic in Africa and emerging economies? 
  • What are the implications for development assistance and for multilateral aid? 

Discussants:

  • Janez Lenarcic is the European Commissioner for Crisis Management. He is Slovenia's former ambassador to the EU. He has also served as ambassador to the OSCE, director of the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, secretary of Slovenia's permanent mission at the UN, and the PM's diplomatic adviser
  • Mo Ibrahim is the Founder and Chair of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, which he established in 2006 to support good governance and exceptional leadership on the African continent. Dr Ibrahim also founded Mobile Systems International (MSI) in 1989 and Celtel International in 1998. He is Founding Chairman of Satya Capital Limited, a private equity fund focused on Africa and Chairman of TPG-Satya, a Joint African Investment Alliance. 

With participation and questions from:

  • Annick-Laure Tchuendem is a former Policy Leader Fellow at the School of Transnational Governance (EUI). She previously worked as a Policy Officer at the UN Regufee Agency (UNHCR), focusing on building and reinforcing the economic self-reliance of forcibly displaced people across the East and Horn of Africa and Zambia.
