Balancing National Unity and Global Solidarity in Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Conversation with Dr. David Nabarro, Special Envoy to the WHO Director-General on COVID-19
This conversation with Dr. Nabarro is part of the DUCIGS/Rethinking Diplomacy Program "Science-Diplomacy Seminar Series."

The lack of national unity and global solidarity are two major obstacles to defining a clear roadmap for the global COVID-19 response and plans of recovery. The World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General has called for cessation of partisan politics and has encouraged international solidarity to avoid additional loss of human life. However, as COVID-19 continues to spread around the world, polarization of response and nationalisms are on the rise. At the time when a coordinated global effort is needed to tackle an international health, economic, and social crisis of unprecedented proportion we are witnessing a fracture in international collaboration and the undermining of multilateralism.
