Kent will continue its Interdisciplinary Interventions series of webinars with ‘Pandemic and Politics: COVID-19, Global Crisis and the Challenge to Humanity’ on Thursday 14 May at 2pm (UK time).

This webinar, which has been organised by its Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS), is free to view via Zoom and will include an audience Q&A.

Scholars from Kent’s internationally renowned Brussels School of International Studies will discuss politics post-pandemic, a lack of leadership, the ideology behind public responses and the potential for political realignments.

What has COVID-19 revealed about our political world? Has it changed national politics and international relations? How might democracy and capitalism evolve? Migration and migrants seem to be one more casualty in the pandemic; will this remain? Or will the globe revert to the old ‘normal’?

The webinar will be hosted by Professor Adrian Pabst, Head of Kent’s School of Politics and International RelationsDr Amanda Klekowski von Koppenfels, Academic Director at BSIS, and Dr Albena Azmanova, Reader of Political and Social Thought at BSIS.
