About us

a hub for the documentation and critical scholarly reflection on the legal, economic, cultural and social aspects associated with pandemics

The GPN is a community of scholars from universities around the world. It intends to promote debates, comparisons, research and webinars in relation to the legal, economic and social aspects associated with pandemics and linked not only to the emergency but also to the precautionary and recovery phases, through an integrated and interdisciplinary approach. The focus obviously starts with the Covid-19
