Politics of bad behaviour – anti-vaxxers and the anti-science backlash

How the calls to combat the pandemic turned into a show of political attitude.

About this event

The use of masks and vaccines to control and prevent the spread of the coronavirus have been a political flash point over the past year. Studies have shown that attitudes towards mask use, vaccination and other public health measures have become a symbol of struggle between individual autonomy and social responsibility. How did it come to this and is there a way to go about it?

This panel discussion will bring together leading social scientists and public health experts to discuss how the calls to combat the pandemic turned into a show of political attitude.
