From its position on the southwestern Malabar coast of India, the state of Kerala has already withstood two major floods and one viral outbreak. 

How one Indian state took on COVID-19

Now Kerala is showing great strength in the face of COVID-19. So how are they doing it and what can we learn? 

Join Professor Thankom Arun from Essex Business School as he explores how the state has benefited hugely from a community-based system in emergency preparedness and a public galvanised by strong social relationships and grassroots community organisations. Hear how at a time of global crisis, collective leadership has provided an effective framework for generating a fast response.

This live webinar will be hosted by Professor Thankom Arun from Essex Business School. The event will run from 12:30pm until 1:30pm on Wednesday 17 June via Zoom.

This event is part of the Essex Social Science on COVID-19 webinar series and is organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences. The webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge. To register your place and join the webinar, book your place via Zoom:
