The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and LSE Institute of Global Affairs (IGA) at the LSE School of Public Policy are teaming up and invite you to the virtual discussion on: Coronavirus and the global economy: what next?

Leading economists discuss the impact of Covid-19 across the EBRD regions in Europe, Asia and Africa and beyond.

The economic and political impacts of the coronavirus pandemic are growing more dramatic by the day. Millions of businesses and the jobs they support are under threat. Commentators already fear the steepest economic slump since the Great Depression in the 1930s. Civil liberties are coming under pressure in many countries.

The era of globalisation may not be at an end, but will look profoundly different. What exactly will the consequences be for the global economy - and what lessons should we draw from the events of the last few months?

To find out, join the current EBRD Chief Economist Beata Javorcik and three former Chief Economists on 16 April at 13:00 (BST/ GMT+1)

* Professor Erik Berglöf, London School of Economics and Political Science

* Professor Sergei Guriev, SciencesPo Paris

* Professor Lord Nicholas Stern, London School of Economics and Political Science

The discussion will be moderated by Jonathan Charles, EBRD Managing Director, Communications and livestreamed on Facebook.

The panellists will examine the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on climate change, trade, globalisation and the many other challenges emerging from the pandemic. You will be able to join the discussion in a concluding Q&A session.

The LSE Institute of Global Affairs at the School of Public Policy and its Global Policy Lab, aim to maximize the impact of the LSE’s leading expertise across social sciences by shaping inclusive and locally-rooted responses to the most important and pressing global challenges with a special focus on emerging and developing economies.

The EBRD currently invests in 38 economies in central, eastern and south-eastern Europe, the northern Mediterranean, Turkey and central Asia to support the development of private sector-based economies. The EBRD Office of the Chief Economist contributes to a better understanding of the economic problems and policy issues at the heart of the EBRD regions through peer-reviewed economic research. OCE also helps guide the Bank’s strategic priorities by measuring the state of transition and development across countries.

The event will be livestreamed on Facebook, follow: #EBRDEconTalk and #LSECOVID19
