The New Reality and Innovative Responses




17 November 2020, 12:00-13:00 CET

Online


Prompted by the plethora of complex problems unearthed by the global pandemic, governments have experimented with new ways of addressing urgent social and economic needs. In Serbia, new initiatives within and outside of government have cropped up striving to create new solutions to previously unseen challenges. What have they learned about experimentation in times of crisis? What does it mean for governments in the Western Balkans and beyond? What does the pandemic teach us about the future direction of government services and operations in the region? This panel will attempt to answer these and other questions in conversation with people and organizations that have stood at the forefront of public sector innovation efforts throughout the ongoing crisis.
