The Annual LSE Economics Symposium is back, with the theme this year being “Unmasking 2020.” We aim to invite academics and professionals to give their insights on the implications of the events experienced in 2020. From analysing how effective policy responses to the pandemic have been to unpacking how society must adapt going forward in a world where uncertainty is the new norm. In a span of a few months, the economic, political and social systems of the world have been tested like never before - join us as we take a step back and unmask 2020.
