In partnership with Institute for Advanced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization

This interdisciplinary session will examine the COVID-19 pandemic holistically from multiple perspectives: leadership, health, youth, social life, cultural life, sustainability, food security, inequality, education, family, politics and law. Experts from different fields will share their research, analyses and insights with the aim of informing a more balanced policy and public debate which will enhance our ability to cope with future crises of a systemic nature, such as climate change.
