Discussing today's crises and their implications for politics and society from a historical perspective was at the core of the first-ever digital #KHF21 on 18-19 May. Taking the disruptions of the fateful year 2020 as a point of departure, more than 40 esteemed international speakers and 300 invited guests discussed a broad range of timely questions such as: What is needed to ensue political participation in digital societies? What has to be done to overcome the historic injustice of racism? And how can the challenge of global health equity be met on the basis of healthcare as a human right?
Speakers included the historians Niall Ferguson, Olivette Otele, Mark Honigsbaum and Geert Mak, Austrian Federal Minister for the EU and Constitution Karoline Edtstadler, former Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb and the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Global Health Equity, Agnes Binagwaho.
