This workshop will kick off the CO-DUTIES project to share ideas, plan deliverables, and develop core project ideas.
This project launch workshop will bring together project members and external researchers to present and discuss topics such as the Covid-19 lockdown, uneven burdens, dimensions of duty and compliance. The team members will be joined by four external researchers who share their insights. Svenn-Erik Mamelund will present results showing that social inequality was forgotten in pandemic preparedness. Sigrun Marie Foss and Ella Marie Sandbakken will discuss difficulties in compliance with measures enforced in a pandemic with a focus on their article "Pushing Too Far? The Case of the Norwegian Cabin Ban and the Dictator's Dilemma in COVID-19 Measures". Kristian Bjørkdahl's presentation will revolve around the paradox of openness and conformity in the governing of Norway during the Covid-19 pandemic. By bringing all of this together, we will be able to discuss the way forward with the CO-DUTIES project.
