Vietnam during the Covid-19 outbreak

Wednesday, May 6th, 2020 @ 17:00 - 18:00

Bent Jörgensen is a senior lecturer at the University of Gothenburg. His main focus area concerns Peace and development research, particularly in Vietnam and India.

 

This online lecture will put focus on how a one-party state like Vietnam handles pandemics, and how censorship and cover-ups in combination with a rather weak and privatised health sector affected the state’s dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak. Bent will also touch on the subject of antibiotic resistance and how it connects to our understanding of Covid-19.

 

The format will be a combination of lecture and “talk” which invites the attendees to participate and ask questions.

The lecture will be held in English.
