Building state capacity in South Africa in the era of pandemic
13 October 2021, 5:00 pm–6:30 pm
Join us to hear Mzukisi Qobo talk about his research on 'Building state capacity in South Africa in the era of pandemic'. This talk will be chaired by IIPP’s Antonio Andreoni with a discussion from Simon Roberts (IIPP). Followed by questions from the audience.
This event is free.
The Covid-19 pandemic exposed fundamental weaknesses in the architecture of states, its capacity for resilience, and shone a light on long-standing socio-economic challenges. The South African state has been tested severely by the pandemic. This discussion will highlight some of these challenges and propose approaches the state should adopt to build dynamic capabilities, bolster innovation, and rethink its social and economic interventions.
