The Covid-19 crisis has ushered in a period of economic and social upheaval. Across the globe, healthcare systems are under more pressure than ever, recession is on the horizon, education systems are on hiatus, and companies are fighting to survive. Policy makers and business leaders worldwide are looking for solutions. But the pandemic also presents opportunities to think about what we want to do differently.
The New Statesman, Britain’s leading political weekly, has been at the forefront of progressive thinking since its founding in 1913. On 12 June, join the New Statesman’s Spotlight policy supplement for a global online forum looking ahead to the world after coronavirus. In a series of interviews, presentations and live Q&A sessions, former and current leaders from politics, business and international organisations will discuss policy in key areas affected by the current crisis.
