This extraordinary event is to explore the impact that the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is having and will have on governance over the next 10 years.

will be examining areas surrounding:
The difficulties of ethical decision making in a crisis
Tensions between elected representatives and governance, in the form of unelected officials or institutions
New and future challenges to public sector governance resulting from the pandemic
