Decolonizing Global Health Governance

Date/Time: 23 August 2022, 16:45-18:00
Venue: Kulturhuset and Zoom

By further exposing the deep injustices in the global health system, with vaccine coverage mapping closely onto the structure of European colonialism, the Covid-19 pandemic added fuel to calls for decolonization of global health governance. This roundtable will discuss what this can mean and what it would take to realize the decolonization of global health governance — how can we reimagine and transform knowledge discourses, governance structures and legal frameworks, from intellectual property to international financial regulations?

Participants: Alicia Ely Yamin (Harvard University, participates digitally), Pedro Villarreal (Max Planck Institute Heidelberg, MPIL), Ana Lorena Ruano (UiB), Omar Mwalim Omar (UiB tbc*)
Moderator: Camila Gianella (Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú and LawTransform)
