Analysis of the EU’s Response to COVID-19. ZHAW Webcast with Sebastian Ramspeck and Franziska Vogel

The COVID-19 pandemic is a major challenge for many states around the world. The ZHAW International Management Institute and its unit for Foreign Affairs & Applied Diplomacy have invited experts to discuss how the European Union is responding to this crisis.

European integration has always been closely linked to a number of crises – sometimes slowing down the European project and sometimes leading to even greater integration. For the new team now leading the EU Commission and the recently elected EU Parliament, the coronavirus pandemic is a crucial test. At the same time, the EU must face other urgent issues such as migration, trade wars and the need to respond to climate change.
