Detailed Schedule

This schedule for the first two weeks of the course is mostly listed below. It’s subject to change, as is the rest of the course. We rely on policy actors kindly giving up their time and their schedules might change at the last moment.

Sessions will be recorded where possible, and you will be able to participate in online discussions as alternative to participating in a seminar/workshop.
