2020 marks the year when the modern world had its first real encounter with a disease that is threatening the survival of the whole humanity. Corona Virus Disease or also known as Covid-19 has changed the way we used to live. The preliminary research on the disease has revealed that it is not going away so easily. Despite countries like China have successfully controlled the disease through strict lock down and social distancing measures, yet scientists are talking about the possibility of a second more deadly wave.
Every country in the world has had a different response in controlling the spread of the disease. The response largely depended on the strength of the economy, the level of awareness among citizens and the governance measures undertaken by the respective governments. In this year’s online course we will try to decipher the impact of important factors like Learning from history; Autonomy of governance (decentralization); Good Governance and most importantly, Freedom of expression and Access to Information in putting an effective control over the Covid-19 pandemic around the world. The four modules are accompanied by a set of questions to test the ability of the participants on the said topics. We wish you best of luck and “Stay Home – Stay Safe.”
