Interview: Flora Sapio on COVID-19 and the Italian Context for Upcoming Webinar "COVID-19 and International Affairs" (17 April 2020)

In the run up to the Webinar Conference Roundtable, Coronavirus and International Relations, a number of participants and contributors agreed to give short interviews around the conference themes and their own interventions. All Zoom interviews will be posted to the Coalition for Peace and Ethics You Tube Channel COVID-19 Conference Playlist.

For our first interview, Flora Sapio speaks to issues of COVID-19 in Italy and its wider implications. Here one encounters the shaping of the European confrontation with the challenges of pandemic and its collateral effects not only on economics and social cohesion, but on the social and economic effects of migration.
