The findings of the work, Federalism and the Response to COVID-19 and Comparative Federalism and COVID-19: Combatting the Pandemic will be discussed with a panel of experts. This event provides the opportunity to enrich one's understanding of the impact of the pandemic on federalism and how federal institutions and structures were mobilized for pandemic response.

As the pandemic continues to ebb and flow globally, comparative international research can provide an invaluable source of learning to inform policy making and practice. Discussions from this event will explore why different federations responded more and less effectively.
