On March 11, Columbia Global Centers | Beijing and Silver Lining, a podcast by three Columbia University undergraduate students under the guidance of the Columbia Global Collaboratory, invited three leading scholars and experts from China and South Korea to share and exchange their insightful perspectives on the application of “sacrifice spirit” to the COVID-19 responses in East Asian countries, and how it differs from that of the West.

This webinar was supported by the Center for Undergraduate Global Engagement and the Weatherhead East Asian Institute.
