  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:

  • Jutta Urpilainen is European Commissioner for International Partnerships and former Minister of Finance, Deputy Prime Minister and Member of the Finnish Parliament. 
  • 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. 

Moderator:

  • Fabrizio Tassinari is Executive Director of the School of Transnational Governance
