    Speaker(s): Professor Arjen Boin, Dr Lydie Cabane, Professor Martin Lodge, Professor Nick Sitter | COVID-19 represents a critical transboundary crisis: it knows no territorial boundaries, and it fundamentally challenges the boundaries of state action. Many national responses to the pandemic have caused transboundary crises in themselves. Given this fundamental challenge, what are the emerging lessons for political crisis leadership? What can we say about the resilience of liberal democratic political systems? And what lessons can be drawn for multi-level crisis management? This event brings together leading experts to consider lessons for political leadership in crisis, the future nature of multi-level crisis management in Europe as well as the wider challenges presented by the pandemic for the legitimacy of liberal democratic political systems.
