On Monday, November 10, 2014 at 4:30 PM, the Institute for African Development and the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies will host a roundtable discussion on the impact of the Ebola pandemic in the Warren Hall Auditorium (B25). Leading experts will discuss the impact of the Ebola pandemic on the most affected countries and the African continent as a whole from different perspectives including political, governance, institutional-health systems, and economic issues.
There is global consensus that the Ebola pandemic has brought untold damage not only to the health and social welfare of the affected countries, but also to mining, agriculture, and service industries globally, as investors evacuate foreign workers, borders close, and international flights are suspended. Bread-basket regions are under quarantine, making agricultural trade impossible. The political repercussions could be far reaching.
