The coronavirus pandemic as a political game changer

Published on 16 June 2020 at 09:36

At the very first Debates Digital event Jan Carson and Iryna Vidanava talk to Debates on Europe’s Carl Henrik Fredriksson about life during the pandemic and how the failures of politicians and governments in response to the Covid-19 crisis have caused allegiances to shift and paved a way for profound political change.

They add elements of understanding of the situation in their respective countries to their articles we have published on Northern Ireland and Belarus, and evoke their personal experience as women engaged within their communities.
