The aim of this webinar is to identify ethical aspects of the pandemic, with an emphasis on examining cross-country similarities and differences regarding policy and public debate across the Nordic countries. We aim to follow the development from the outbreak of the pandemic and over time.
This is # 2 in a series of webinars under the common theme: The Ethics of the Covid-19 Pandemic: Nordic Perspectives.
