Event description
The ISSP will host a panel to discuss the successes and failures of COVID governance and what they mean for trust in the public sector.

About this event

The cascading crises initiated by COVID-19 have placed new and enormous pressures on decision-makers. The underlying science is quickly evolving, often contested, and not easily translated into policy recommendations. Moreover, we do not always agree on the appropriate roles for scientists, political leaders, and public servants.

This panel will discuss the successes and failures of COVID governance and what they mean for trust in expertise and public sector decision-making over the longer term.

  • Prof. Josephine Etowa, Faculty Affiliate, ISSP and Full Professor, Faculty of Health Sciences, uOttawa
  • Prof. Patrick Fafard, Core member of the ISSP and Full Professor, Faculty of Social Sciences, uOttawa 
  • Maxime Lê, Public Health Project Officer, Ottawa Public Health and Principal, Lê & Co. Consultants.
