On this episode, I speak with Florentin Blanc who is a Senior Policy Analyst at the OECD. In his work, he explores the effectiveness of regulation. Recently he has been looking at how different countries have responded to COVID-19 and in our discussion, we look at what has worked well and what hasn't. Not only is this of interest to each of us as citizens, but it is also helpful from a Human Risk perspective, as we can learn from what works (and doesn't) in this context and look to deploy the findings in other contexts.

You can read two of Florentin's most recent papers on this here: https://oecdonthelevel.com/2020/05/12/enforcing-social-distancing-assessing-what-works-and-what-doesnt/
