Webinar – COVID-19 and Centralized Power, 2 July:

As COVID-19 has escalated into a pandemic, a political debate has been raging about whether autocracies or democracies are better at fighting epidemics.

Prof. Ang will explain why this debate is misguided, and attempt to deliver a balanced account of how China has handled the COVID-19 outbreak, arguing that we must distinguish the impact of regime types from other factors on governments’ responses to the crisis.
