Tulane highlights SIT's "Rethinking the Good Life: A Global South Perspective on Health and Well-being"

Wednesday, 4/7 | 11am-12pm EDT | Click Here to Register

This panel engages with the symptomatic treatment of diseases from the perspective of a 5000-year tradition of health and healing: AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy). Panelists will explore the ways these Eastern medical traditions can, through a more holistic understanding of the human being and a less materialistic conception of the good life, help create the conditions to promote good health and longevity in tandem with modern medical traditions.

Tulane highlights INSTEP-WFU's "Public Policy Responses to COVID-19 in Europe"

Date And Time

Thu, February 25, 2021

12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CST

A year on from the declaration of a global health pandemic by the WHO in March 2020, this talk will review the similarities and differences of the public policy response to COVID-19 by a range of European governments (including, but not limited to, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the UK, Spain and Sweden) in the first six months of the crisis (March-September 2020). This talk will reflect on some of the consequences and implications this has for politics and public policy in Europe. The lecture will be based on a special issue of the European Policy Analysis journal that presents and contrasts public policy responses to COVID-19 in more than twenty countries that Barry guest edited.
