NS Global Policy Forum

By Svetlozar Simeonov

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, education systems are on hiatus, and companies are fighting to survive. Policymakers and business leaders are looking for solutions. But the pandemic also presents opportunities to think about what we want to do differently. On 12 June, the New Statesman and the Spotlight policy supplement convened a global online forum looking ahead to the world after coronavirus. Access all the interviews and discussions from the event below.
