Coronavirus: The Whole Story
How do we build pandemic resilience?
This week, we speak to two UCL experts to find out what we can do to help mitigate the long-term harms of coronavirus and reduce the risk of future pandemics. In this episode, we ask: how long will the impacts of COVID-19 last - and will we start seeing many more pandemics in future?
Host Vivienne Parry speaks to Professor Sir Richard Blundell, Professor of Political Economy and Director of the ESRC Centre for the Microeconomic Analysis of Public Policy. Richard recently co-authored 'The Covid Decade', a British Academy report released last week on understanding the long-term societal impacts of COVID-19. Our second guest is Julia Kreienkamp, a researcher at the UCL Global Governance Institute working on the Horizon 2020 project 'Global Governance and the European Union: Future Trends and Scenarios'. Julia’s research focuses on the global governance of human rights, health and climate change and how we think about existential global risks.
