Southeast Asian National Responses to Covid-19


2 July 2020 – 10am BST [5pm Manila / Singapore / KL; 4pm Bangkok]

How have Southeast Asian countries responded to Covid-19? What might other countries learn from the experiences of Southeast Asian countries? Join us for a cross-national panel discussion of national responses and societal implications to the pandemic with scholars and experts from across Southeast Asia hosted by ASEAS(UK). This hour-long session will explore the politics, cultural responses and distributional impacts of Covid-19 in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The discussion will include moderated Q&A.
