The International Affairs Webinar Series provides readers and Chatham House members the opportunity to discuss pertinent topics with experts in the field.
The series’ panellists are recent International Affairs authors who will discuss their research and answer questions you have about its impact on your business, policy measures or area of interest.
During global health emergencies the needs and expertise of women and non-binary gender identities are often disregarded. COVID-19 is no different. There has been limited attention paid to the way pandemic response plans disproportionately affect women or to the primary and secondary effects on different individuals and communities, including the long-term consequences for their education, health, income and civic participation.
This webinar will consider these shortcomings and demonstrate how the discipline of international relations can help global health institutions and national governments devise policies and programmes that do not have disproportionate impacts women and other marginalized groups.
