Between Complacency and Panic: Legal, Ethical and Policy Responses to Emerging Infectious Diseases
Emerging Infectious diseases such as Ebola and the Zika virus pose
potentially grave threats to human health. They can also incite
overreations that lead to the scapegoating of vulnerable populations and
counter-productive public health responses, such as occurred during the
2014 Ebola outbreak. This one day conference Between Complacency and
Panic: Legal, Ethical and Policy Responses to Emerging Infectious
Diseases, will bring together leading policymakers, practitioners and
academics to explore the dangers of such diseases and to discuss the
development of effective, evidence-based, legally sound and ethically
appropriate policy responses. View the event agenda to learn more or download an event flyer.
