GCMIC welcomes Dr. Anna Holzscheiter, John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellow and Professor of International Relations at the Center for Transnational Relations, Foreign and Security Policy at Freie Universit?t Berlin.
ABSTRACT: The outbreak of Ebola in Western Africa, and international efforts to contain it once again, make one thing abundantly clear: global health governance is a mess. Within this field of global cooperation, the number of actors, institutions and programs that are concerned with specific diseases or contribute to the strengthening of health systems around the globe has dramatically risen, particularly since the turn of the century. While this development led to an unprecedented increase in resources and manpower in many health areas, it has also moved the question of how to ensure better coordination and coherence between these actors to the forefront of the public debate. In this talk, Dr. Holzscheiter will offer different explanatory approaches for why more and more actors in global health governance are seeking to reverse the fragmentation trend, looking particularly to the influence of global norms that equate effective global governance with coordinated and coherent global governance.
Admission is Free. Space is limited. RSVP is required
