“A Stress Test for the World Health Organization (WHO) in a Pandemic World: What Can We Hope for the Future”, in Pandemic Societies

The chapter “A stress test for the World Health Organization (WHO) in a pandemic world: what can we hope for the future”, of the book Pandemic Societies was written by many researchers at H-POD. They are:

  • Jean-Louis Denis (Co-director of H-POD)
  • Catherine Régis (Co-director of H-POD)
  • Miriam Cohen (Associate professor at the University of Montreal Law Faculty and associated researcher)
  • Stéphanie Cadeddu (post-doctoral researcher and coordinator of H-POD)
  • Gaëlle Foucault (Doctoral candidate in international public law, University of Montreal and researcher at H-POD)

“Pandemic Societies brings together experts in a wide range of academic disciplines to reflect on how their fields might be transformed in this new context. While the pandemic forces global institutions, such as the World Health Organization, to reimagine the ways in which they function, it also reaches into our everyday lives to change how we organize culture, performing arts, sports, tourism, and cities. Exploring how COVID-19 has altered people’s daily experiences – the ways they meet to play, to perform, and to entertain themselves – this book also pulls the lens back to take in the broader institutional and political contexts in which these quotidian activities are carried out.”
