The 2020 US Election and Covid-19: One Year On

The 2020 US electoral cycle was truly historic. Along with two presidential candidates at odds with each other over policy, campaign decorum, and their visions of the future, it occurred in the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic.

On the anniversary of the election, this panel event features academics and practitioners based in the US, the UK, and Germany. It will explore the intersection between the Covid-19 pandemic and the 2020 US election.

The event builds on a briefing paper published in June 2021 that explored the intersection between the Covid-19 pandemic and the 2020 US electoral cycle. Titled 'Pandemic Politics: Covid-19 and the 2020 US Electoral Cycle', the briefing paper is available here.

This event is an output of The Covid-19 and Democracy Project, which is based at Kingston University. Follow us: @C19andDemoProj

The introduction and presentations of this event will be recorded and released as an episode of The Covid-19 and Democracy Podcast.
