The 2020 After Shock Dialogues Network connects together like-minded events taking place before Government After Shock. Each member of the Network will share high level insights and take-away messages from their events and activities to help inform the broader dialogue in 2020 around the COVID-19 crisis and its implications for government. Each event does not necessarily focus on the crisis – but each event relates to it in some way and gives a different perspective about what might need to change in light of the crisis.

If you would like to know more about the Dialogues Network, you can read more in this blog post, or If you have an event or activity that wants to join the 2020 After Shock Dialogues Network, please get in touch.

For each event, a short report capturing key insights from the event/activities will be produced and added under each event page once published. Alternatively you can find the collection of reports here.
