Governing Africa during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic

African governments have rolled out various measures to manage the impacts of COVID-19. Lockdowns, states of emergency, curfews and social distancing have severely curtailed commercial activity and civil liberties, and in some cases resulted in outright abuses.

Africa’s electoral calendar also presents challenges. The safety of citizens during the pandemic must be balanced with voter expectations, constitutional requirements and the need for political stability.

This seminar will discuss current governance realities on the continent, lessons for African governments and what to expect post-COVID-19.

Chair: Liesl Louw-Vaudran, Senior Researcher & Project Leader, ISS
