The University of Nottingham's Taiwan Studies Programme and the Taipei Medical University jointly host this year's conference on Public Policy in A Time of Crisis: Comparing British and Taiwanese government responses to Covid 19.

Covid-19, at the moment of writing this is still at its peak. The challenges presented to our societies are not only for health, and the healthcare system, but also the long-term social and economic impacts on a global scale. The original motivation for this project started from the standpoint of political economy We tried to find an answer to unpack the current impact of the pandemic on societies. We realised that we could not solve this query from a single perspective or by studying one government.

Therefore the Taiwan Studies Program collaborated with colleagues in Nottingham University Business School (Prof. Stephen Timmons) and from Taipei Medical University. We believe that with our interdisciplinary analytical expertise and cross-country examples, we will be able to present a comprehensive analysis of what government actions have been at the beginning, during and (hopefully) at the end of the pandemic. This analysis is useful for governance in a fast-changing and challenging future.
