Social Science and Legal Research on Pandemics
As the Covid-19 emergency sweeps across the globe, international scholars are starting to consider the longer term social and economic repercussions and what this means for our policy makers.
To inform this discussion we have freed up relevant chapters from our archive (list below) looking at the impact of past pandemics as well as the state of the art social science research prior to the current emergency.
The articles cover topics such as global health regulation for influenza, pandemics and migration, health emergencies and the international trading system, the complexity and cost-benefit trade-offs considered in preparing for pandemics, access to medicines, compulsory licensing and incentivising new medicines, building trust in public health responses, the impact of pandemics on business continuity and the challenge for university leaders in difficult times.
Please share these articles widely, and let us know if you come across other relevant chapters from our books.
Our friendly editors are also available if you would like to arrange a video call to discuss your own research and writing plans in the coming weeks.
