As the world grapples with the new challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, "emergency socialism" has emerged, to varying degrees, virtually everywhere. This has prompted Qatar Foundation’s Doha Debates to focus its next global program on the merits of socialism during and after the pandemic.
The livestreamed debate will feature author and commentator Fatima Bhutto, former UK Foreign Secretary; Lord William Hague, House of Commons Leader; and Tabata Amaral, Brazilian congresswoman and activist. The debate will include individual arguments, solutions-focused bridge-building dialogue, and participation from Qatar and around the world.
Watch the debate live via Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube on 20 July 2020. You can also join the debate and discussion at @DohaDebates with the hashtag #DearWorld.
