Senior Fellow George Bogden discusses the Global Politics of Pandemics in the Context of Ebola



Senior Fellow George Bogden co-authored the policy brief “Medicine for Fear: Transatlantic Leadership in Emergency Funding for Epidemics of Communicable Diseases” that was published in 2015 by the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

In the brief, the authors reviewed the global politics of pandemics in the context of the Ebola crisis in 2014, arguing that emerging communicable diseases cannot be managed effectively through delayed and disaggregated measures. Rather, to the authors, it is necessary to make efforts toward strategic and long-term thinking about combating future pandemic crises. Interested in learning more? You can access the full brief here.
