Palgrave Studies in Knowledge, Policy and Governance: Pandemics, Science and Policy

 

"Pandemics, Science and Policy examines the case study of the World Health Organisation's (WHO) representation and management of the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic. It analyses key criticisms made about the WHO's actions through an examination of the social context in which pandemic management decisions were made, and ultimately illustrations the various ways in which the WHO's account was vulnerable to contestation.Abeysinghe provides a persuasive account of the interplay between uncertain science and the creation of global policy.
