The current coronavirus pandemic is challenging our societies in unprecedented ways. AGYA members, alumni and invited experts from various disciplines across the Arab world and Germany discuss the multifaceted implications of the novel coronavirus not only for science and medicine, but also for our societies, economies, culture and politics. This cross-disciplinary dialogue platform addresses questions like: Is Germany’s Basic Law fit to address the governance challenges posed by the pandemic? How could Saudi Arabia theologically justify cancelling the Islamic pilgrimage, the Hajj? In what ways can isolation affect physical and mental health? And what might the ongoing pandemic mean for the global economy?
This page gathers views and analyses of the AGYA members and alumni on different aspects of the coronavirus pandemic.
