Pandemics in international relations

The coronavirus pandemic
Historian Prof Beatrice de Graaf explores the history of pandemics from a political perspective.

For more than 2000 years, written history has reported the emergence of global pandemics. Historian Prof Beatrice de Graaf (UU) will explore how pandemics came to be seen as a risk factor and threat to collective security. What lessons can we draw from earlier efforts to fight disease outbreaks? Which obstacles in international relations need to be removed to improve the global fight against pandemic waves?

With our colleagues of UMC Utrecht we bring you this webinar.

Please note: this lecture will only be available live via Zoom, not on demand!
