High-Level Policy Dialogue - Health: Crisis governance for a vital global public good

Dates:
  • Thu 17 Dec 2020 16.30 - 18.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-12-17 16:30 2020-12-17 18:30 Europe/Paris High-Level Policy Dialogue - Health: Crisis governance for a vital global public good

This High-Level Policy Dialogue, organised in collaboration between the EUI and Bruegel in the context of the Transformation of Global Governance project, will discuss the challenges confronting multilateralism and international cooperation in global health policy. 

Covid-19 has thrown into sharp light issues that impede truly global collective action despite the clear interest of all to cooperate. Scientific and economic warnings about the emergence of new pandemics and their consequences existed before the crisis, yet governments had to scramble to protect their populations; and national failures drew attention from international cooperation. Given the collapse in cooperation and of effective authority over health governance, panellists and invitees will discuss what strategies should be pursued at international level, and by what means?

The process of rebuilding international cooperation will involve massive (re)distributional choice. In a global environment where geopolitical events and shifts impact decision-making as much as economic developments, how can states and international organisations rebuild a better international health regime, and with what civil protection, accountability, and inclusiveness?

The policy dialogue is part of an ongoing research project on the Transformation of Global Governance, which aims to decipher the transformation of global governance in a series of policy fields and assess the effectiveness of emerging global governance arrangements. The policy dialogue brings together a small number of senior policymakers, recognised experts and key participants from academia, industry, and civil society in discussion in a restricted format under the Chatham House rule. Following the discussion, a policy brief will be published detailing the recommendations that come out of the discussion.
