Science-Diplomacy 101 and the COVID-19 Pandemic: The building blocks of science-diplomacy and exceptionalism in time of crisis
The multidimensional implications of the COVID-19 pandemic have revealed an increasing need for coordination between policymakers and scientists to address urgent societal change. Science Diplomacy recognizes science as a process for pursuing evidence and diplomacy as a process for dialogue and cooperation between different stakeholders. This first webinar will introduce the main concepts of science diplomacy and explore its relevance through the discussion of WHO recommendations, epidemiological time versus decision-making time, and cases of ‘exceptionalism’ such as Sweden and the United States.

Mr. Christian Lara (UN Diplomat and DUCIGS/Rethinking Diplomacy), Professor William Pan (Duke University) and Professor Giovanni Zanalda (Duke University Center for International & Global Studies) will be the discussants.

May 7, 2020 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
