The threats of the SARS -CoV-2 pandemic, and the effectiveness and harms of the social policies meant to mitigate these threats, rapidly became the most important scientific issues in many years. This session will analyse the pandemic and policy response from a variety of angles. Topics will include the nature and empirical basis for the relevant epidemiological models, the difficulties with exporting policies out of European contexts, and the challenges of democratic citizen science in a context of lay conspiratorial skepticism of science.

Speakers: Elizabeth Anderson (University of Michigan – Ann Arbor), Alexander Broadbent (University of Johannesburg), Eric Winsberg (University of South Florida)

Chair: Jacob Stegenga
