Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the concept of solidarity has been on everyone’s lips. But while solidarity is held dear in political speeches and debates at all levels of politics, the prevailing impression is that political practice is often different.

At this sef: Policy Lunch, we will discuss what solidarity means in concrete terms as a political concept guiding action in the international context. How can it be operationalised in global health cooperation? In particular, we would like to explore how the EU can contribute to institutionalising genuine solidarity in global health cooperation, based on the experience during the current pandemic.
