Video: The Success and Failure of Intergovernmental Coordination

This webinar by Ian Peach was delivered on March 27 as part of our Policy Challenges During a Pandemic series

In this video, Ian Peach discusses the challenges in coordinating governmental actors at the international, national, sub-national, and local levels, right down to the administrators of individual institutions, in the face of a public health crisis like COVID-19, as well as the breadth of implications of the crisis that must be managed in a coordinated manner. His guest, New Brunswick’s Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, Dominic Cardy, gives a real-world example of the challenges involved in acting quickly but in a coordinated way.
