Grotius Chambers prepared a primer for discussion that identifies four issues International Organisations must think about now to emerge stronger after COVID-19.
As COVID-19 continues to grab the main headlines, it is important that International Organisations (IOs) and their staff are and remain alert to the many consequences this pandemic will cause. Already, IOs took extraordinary measures, including putting staff on administrative or special leave. But many consequences will not be limited to the duration of the pandemic but continue to unfold even afterwards. Their early identification now is paramount to start preparing for such post-pandemic consequences.
Grotius Chambers has started this process to find those areas where early preparation can make a real difference. Ongoing discussions with clients and within our networks and our understanding of IOs and their regulatory environments help us. In this Client Brief, we identify four issues that we understand are already, or could become soon, priorities for many IOs and their staff.
