CIL – ILA Webinar on COVID-19: Cross-sector Interlinkages and Public International Law

COVID-19 is arguably the biggest threat and challenge confronting the world since World War Two ended. It is difficult to recall any other event where the established norms upon which the world functions have been altered so drastically. From the way we work to the way we interact, learn, trade, travel and live, it is unlikely that things will ever return to the way they were during the pre-COVID days again.

This dialogue session with Mr Steven Solomon, Principal Legal Officer at the World Health Organization, explored the interlinkages between the various sectors across different segments of public international law, and the interactions between States, international organizations as well as private sector entities, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent key developments, such as the commencement of administering of vaccinations and the COVAX Facility initiative, was also part of the discussion.

This webinar was co-organized by the NUS Centre for International Law (CIL) and the Singapore Branch of the International Law Association (SG-ILA).
