This first webinar has served to set the scene for the ensuing series, identifying some of the key topics, challenges, and policy issues. Building on this University of Bristol researchers will be able to apply to host their own webinar within this series in collaboration with external partner(s). Future webinars may have different regional and/or thematic foci, exploring the various dimensions of how this pandemic will impact on lives across the globe.
