Analysis of Cultural and Political Factors on the Impact of COVID-19
- This event has passed.
In a recent GRI publication, political, institutional, and cultural factors were correlated with the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us to hear from the authors of this study about what socio-political factors were of significance in predicting a country’s relative success in handling the ongoing pandemic.
The authors express the cultural properties of the countries analyzed using the Hofstede model of personal autonomy within a society (individualism), acceptance of hierarchical structures (power distance), and balance between tradition and modernism. Political dimensions in the study include respect for legislation (the rule of law), participation in decisions (democracy), and level of corruption.
Understanding the relationships between these factors may assist governments and regulators in better creating preventative and mitigating measures for future infectious disease outbreaks.
