City Diplomacy in the era of COVID 19
This event will launch a series of virtual forums to serve as a platform for sharing views and perspectives on how cities around the world are coping, performing, and managing under the COVID-19 pandemic. This launch forum will discuss ideas for sharing experiences and networking, observations from actual situations and responses, and setting out an agenda for research and networking.
This five-part series will serve as a platform for sharing views and perspectives on how cities around the world are coping, performing and managing under the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nascent research, academic and pedagogic pathways and policy ideas will be explored as a starting point for more substantive projects. All these are encapsulated in the above-mentioned theme
