Professor Marie-Claire Cordonier Segger discusses why Law must work to foster and not frustrate post-pandemic recovery.

This Live from Lucy talk highlights law and governance interfaces at the international level, and innovations adopted at the national level, that synergistically advance both achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and fostering post-pandemic economic recovery while laying the groundwork for long-term restructuring towards the green economy. And why Law must work to foster post-pandemic recovery which prioritizes achievement of the SDGs as the agreed global developmental architecture.
