How can people’s behaviour and attitudes during lockdown inform social policy for post-pandemic UK?
This webinar, hosted by the Nuffield Foundation, will explore the emerging evidence on people’s attitudes to the initial policy response to COVID-19 and consider how this might inform both the short-term transition from lockdown and the longer-term response to mitigate the social impact of the pandemic.
Drawing on contemporary research funded by the Nuffield Foundation and related evidence, the panel will consider people’s attitudes to the government and media response to the pandemic and their compliance (or otherwise) with the severe restrictions on their liberty.
