COVID-19 has interrupted lives everywhere and made previously normal activities, like travelling or gathering, difficult and unpredictable. The pandemic has dramatically underscored the importance and complexities of health in today’s globalized world and the difficulties of returning to “normal”. In this programme, teams of students will work together to debate whether the option of issuing so-called vaccine passports is a good way to help the world reopen, or, alternatively, a path towards greater inequities. If you are interested in learning more about global health and development, please join us in this timely exercise and the opportunity to interact directly with experts.
