Making law and policy post COVID-19: flexibility, ambiguity and a scrutiny gap

The Legacy of Lockdown: Making law and policy post COVID-19 is a new series of videos created by our Public law and policy team on how the UK Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic is accelerating changes in the way it goes about governing.

In this video, Andrew Eaton and Telha Arshad, discuss UK Government's approach to regulating public life during the crisis by heavily relying on the publication of extensive non-binding government guidance with the aim to implement dramatic shifts in policy quickly at the outset of the crisis. However, this approach might have possible long-term impact in terms of the way the UK Government will interact with businesses and the economy, and the interplay between law and policy post COVID-19.

Should you wish to discuss any of the topics in this video series or suggest topics for future ones, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
