East Asia’s Response to COVID-19: Legal Approaches of China, Japan, and South Korea

April 24, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Closely bound by travel and trade, with multiple high density urban centers, the governments of China, Japan and South Korea have each had to contend with COVID-19's rapid spread. Yet each has taken a different approach to combating the virus and managing it at the national level. What accounts for both the different levels of preparedness and the different approaches in East Asia? What legal measures have been taken by each country?

Columbia Global Centers | Beijing cordially invites you to join the Directors of the Centers for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Legal Studies, Ben Liebman, Nobuhisa Ishizuka, and Jeong-Ho Roh at Columbia Law School in a discussion on the comparative approaches, lessons, and the potential for trilateral cooperation.
