Summits in the COVID Era: Reflections from the 2021 G7 Summit

September 28, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

In June 2021 the G7 met in-person for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began, marking a return towards normality after international summits, along with so much of our lives, were forced online. Having attended the UK-hosted summit, Dr Tristen Naylor (Cambridge University) will share his observations, reflecting on what the ‘new normal’ for international summitry is likely to be and what the implications are of shifts towards ‘virtual’ and ‘hybrid’ forms of online summitry.

Prior to his academic career Dr Naylor served as a Policy Analyst and Advisor to the Government of Canada
