Event-Recording: ASEAN Forum 2020 Responses to COVID-19
This was the eighth iteration of ASEAN Forum which focuses on responses to COVID-19 across ASEAN.
When: 3-4-5 August 2020 and 12 August 2020
Where: This event will be run entirely online over the course of two weeks - stay tuned for the video talks and podcasts!
As 2020 began, the world watched as the COVID-19 pandemic slowly spread its way across the globe. Across the countries of ASEAN, this unprecedented event played out in diverse ways. Countries like Vietnam demonstrated highly effective ways of managing the virus, whereas others, like Indonesia, spent considerable time denying its existence. These experiences reflect quite different responses to the pandemic – differences that underscore the diversity of political, economic and health landscapes across the ASEAN region.
The recordings are explorations into how ASEAN and the countries it comprises have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic at a government level, economically, and in terms of health and livelihoods.

Each of our specialists will record a 5-minute video presentation which will be made available in the week of 3-5 August 2020. They are instructed to pitch their talk to an interested, but not necessarily academic, audience so the talks are able to be enjoyed by a wide range of people.
In addition, all speakers recordings are in 15-minute podcasts about the same topics, which are all made available through this link, here.
