The pandemic and international response - UN and EU perspectives - webbinarium

Research profile seminar

In order to meet the challenges of a post-corona reality it seems clear that the world will have a great need for well-functioning organizations for multilateral and regional cooperation.

In battling the pandemic, the nation states have naturally been the primary actors. At the same time, it seems clear that, at least so far, coordinated responses through international cooperation have been limited. In some instances it might be said that the absence of response to pandemic has put the legitimacy of established structure for international cooperation into question.

The objective of this webinar is to gain a deeper understanding of in which ways the present pandemic may affect the preconditions for multilateral and regional cooperation in a post-corona reality. The focus will be on the UN and the EU.

- The webinar will start with introductory remarks relating to the UN and the EU by Jan Eliasson, former Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, and Cecilia Malmström, former EU Commissioner and visiting Professor at the School of Business, Economics and Law.

- The presentations will include reflections on the roles that have been played by the UN and the EU so far, and a forward-looking perspective relating to the roles that the UN and the EU may be able to play in a post-corona setting. How large will the gap between the desirable and the realistic be?

The discussion will be moderated by Per Cramér, Professor of International Law and Dean, School of Business, Economics and Law.
