ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: United We Stand: Exploring new collaboration architectures in uncertain times

The crisis has revealed how international frameworks for adopting common policy approaches are critical to harmonise efforts and ensure consistency in the supply chain of public goods across national boundaries (e.g. medical supplies). Yet, in the outbreak of a crisis, voluntary sharing of knowledge and co-designed solutions can provide an alternative, rapid response mechanism to bring expertise and knowledge to find mutually beneficial solutions. This session explores the possibilities and tensions of rule-based and informal approaches to international cooperation in solving public challenges.
