Department of Politics roundtable

The international community has come under intense scrutiny in recent months in the wake of perceived mistakes and inactions following the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa.  But what exactly went wrong with the international response to this outbreak?  What would have been an adequate response?  Is the world prepared for future outbreaks?  A panel of experts explores the national, regional and global dimensions of response to health issues - considering the political, economic and cultural dynamics at play.
