In part two of this special Policy Forum Pod, we hear personal perspectives and COVID-19 policy prescriptions from Sara Bice, Matthew Sussex, and Libby Hackett.

What are the qualities of successful institutions and leaders during a crisis? How can governments improve their public messaging and arrest a trend of declining trust? And how are globalised educational institutions coping and adapting to the major ruptures caused by the coronavirus crisis? On this Policy Forum Pod, we hear from three experts from ANU Crawford School of Public Policy – Sara Bice, Matthew Sussex, and Libby Hackett – about public policy, leadership, and political communication in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
