Critical Health Geopolitics – Lessons from COVID-19

28 Sep 2022
International Risk & Resilience Conference
  • Geopolitical biases prevented Europe from heeding early warnings from China on the severity of COVID-19
  • Harsh lockdowns were positioned as brutalisation of citizens rather than an appropriate threat response
  • Through this, COVID-19 has shown us how global risks can be politicised and weaponised
  • Geopolitical alliances need to be strongly critiqued to respond appropriately to the growing environmental crises
