The public’s experience of dealing with institutions during COVID-19

An analysis of the country’s pandemic response needs to consider the views and experiences of the broader population as well as those at the heart of it. This roundtable will bring together those with on-the-ground knowledge of how various groups were affected by the pandemic. They will examine how institutions performed during the pandemic from that point of view and identify how we can ensure that the voices and experiences of the public are not overlooked in the decision-making process. The roundtable will allow us to explore potential solutions for more effective and inclusive institutions that better meet the diverse needs of communities.

NB: This roundtable is open only to participants registered for the entirety of the conference. For details, visit the main conference page. Confirmed speakers are shown. Roundtable composition is not yet final. 

Next roundtable: Trust, communication and decision-making
