Tracing apps. Border closures. Quarantines. Immunity Passports. QR Codes. And good old fashioned legislation.
Join us on a trip from Seoul to Sydney via the UK, as we hear about the role of law in codifying safeguards, and (re)opening borders and businesses. Our all-star line-up have been closely following (and in one case, leading!) their respective legislative approaches, and will weigh in about trust, containment, and function creep.
This is a special event of When the Music’s Over series also co-hosted with OpenNet Korea.
The session includes inputs from:

We’ve had balcony concerts. Livestreams. Living room jam sessions. Pots and pans banging. And clapping. (So much clapping). We’ve been inspired by the talent, generosity and spirit on display. But continue to ask: what next?
What happens when the music stops, but the surveillance doesn’t? When bands return to stadiums, but emergency powers don’t return to the statute books? When the ‘new normal’ becomes the same old scope creep? When beaches reopen, but migrant worker dorms don’t?
Over the course of our weekly conversation series, When the Music’s Over, we’ll convene scholars, practitioners, and artists, to parse and reimagine the evolving post-COVID19 landscape. We’ll talk rights, norms, policies, practices and artifacts. And we’ll do it with a particular focus on power, inequality, access and vulnerability. In Asia, and beyond. Join us!
