2020 Conversations: Critical junctures: Reimagining regulatory governance

In a period of months, political and economic institutions across the world have been thrown into crisis by the spread of Covid-19. Leaders find themselves confronted by a series of critical junctures, moments of decision that will carry wide-ranging and long-lasting consequences for the basic structure of our societies.

In the 2020 Conversations series, the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) will host a series of events aiming to shed light on how processes of societal change which preceded Covid-19 have taken on new significance in this historical moment.

In three separate panel events, leading experts from across the social sciences will consider questions around the explosion and regulation of private data, the prospects for health equity in the wake of pandemic and the centrality of giant corporations across domains of politics and science. A final panel will consider how interdisciplinary social sciences aid in grappling with complex problems.
