NEXTEUK Webinar- EU and UK health and vaccination strategies in times of Covid-19: (mis)trust and politics
Covid-19 is the first major test for EU-UK relations. The vaccination race and ensuing competition for contracts and jabs had led to a first major row between the UK and its ex-EU partners.

Following the announcement of the delivery of less vaccines by AstraZeneca, the Commission made the mistake to announce a control of EU exports of vaccines therefore suspending de facto the Northern Ireland protocol. Correcting immediately its mistake, after raising the eyebrows of Germany and France, this diplomatic row highlights the role that the health and vaccination strategies can have on the future of the EU-UK relations. Eventually both partners need each other in the vaccines race but it raises a series of question that our experts will answer in this webinar:
-is the vaccination strategy adopted by the UK and other EU member states symptomatic of a 'renationalisation' or (mis)trust trends?
-after a successful recovery plan during the first lockdown, is the EU meeting new governance challenges with its vaccines strategy?
-what implications are there for citizens' trust in governments' vaccines strategies?
-what are the perspectives in different countries and especially in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany?
-are there also any lessons to draw from a global health perspective and more specifically what does the return of the US to WHO mean for the EU? And what is the EU's perspective on developing countries' access to vaccines?

This webinar is part of the NEXTEUK 2.0 Lecture Series on the future of EU-UK relations, it is organised in partnership with the IHSS Covid-19 Working Group at Queen Mary University of London. It is supported by Erasmus +
