The coronavirus pandemic poses an unprecedented threat to governments around the world. Are authoritarian states inherently better suited to deal with the pandemic? What is at stake for democratic states as they attempt to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus? And what are the lasting implications for governments in a post-pandemic world? Are we witnessing a series of transformative events that will fundamentally alter governments’ relations with their publics?

Join Larry Diamond, Andrea Kendall-Taylor, and Rachel Kleinfeld for a virtual discussion, moderated by Aaron David Miller, on how the global pandemic will impact different systems of government.
