The challenges posed by Covid-19 and the unfolding economic recession have put different models of crisis management into test. Comparing China and US’s handling of public health emergency is not only useful in finding a tested strategy for this ongoing crisis but also in understanding the governance structures and basic political-economic systems of the two entities.
Dic Lo will present his working paper titled China versus the US in the Pandemic Crisis: The State-People Nexus Confronting Systemic Challenges in this seminar. It will be followed by a discussion with Heiko Khoo and Q&A from the audience. It is a free event but spaces are limited.
