Objectives

GPN is an international network in the field of human sciences, aimed at bringing together
academics as well as distinguished experts, with a view to mutually exchange research and
information on pandemics, engage in deep-rooted discussions and bring forward solutions for
decision-makers based on analysis of best practices and comparison of experiences.
To this end we have identified the following thematic focuses: Covid-19 and government response, human rights, environment, cities, competition, digital society, taxation, healthcare systems, public management, international organizations, international investments and virtual teams.

The objectives of the webinar are three-fold:
(1) To promote global working groups and global partnership between universities.
- for each field of the call (Human Rights, Environment, Governance) one or more
working groups will be established;
- all members of the network have the possibility to join a group, choosing one of the
three fields of the call (Human Rights, Environment, Governance) and possibly
indicating the topic of interest;
- the groups will be formed trying to represent scholars from all continents of the
world;
- each group will have one or more coordinators;
- the groups will work in virtual teams, through web platforms;
- in October, participants in the groups will meet in intermediate webinar open to all
members of the network;
- at the end of 2020 the groups will present the results of their work in a final webinar;
- all participants in the group, alone or in collaboration with other co-authors, will
publish their work in the journals that, together with GPN, have launched the call;
- the publications will be collected, after the final webinar, in a special issue of the
first months of 2021, it being understood that, where there will be mature
contributions already before, these will be published before the special issue;
- the most relevant contributions will finally be collected in a volume on Covi-19 at
the end of 2021.
(2) To facilitate exchange of experiences, lessons learned and good practices between countries, and
identify common perspectives, priorities and solutions at an early stage in dealing with health
emergencies and in managing their impact on the environment and human rights and cities
(3) To promote innovative solutions and contribute to a Post-Covid 19 Agenda on Development -
Environment - HRs - Cities

Impact and Results

As a newly established Global Network, the GPN will be shaking the global debate on political-
legal-socio-economic recovery, supporting and enhancing the role of the Research, with several actions and team working as one across different aspects of the response.
Therefore the GPN will undertake a series of academic activities through 2022. GPN’s activities will include webinars, drafting of scientific reports, and academic publications. Moreover, the GPN will serve as a unique forum to collect relevant contributions on global responses to COVID-19 and its legacy, to prompt further debate and enable knowledge-sharing among high-level academic institutions worldwide, and to spur future cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research collaborations.
