Closely bound by travel and trade, with multiple high-density urban centers, the governments of China, South Korea, and Japan have each had to contend with COVID-19’s rapid spread. Yet each has taken a different approach to combat the virus and managing it at the national level. What accounts for both the different levels of preparedness and the different approaches in East Asia? What legal measures have been taken by each country? Join the Directors of the Centers for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Legal Studies, Ben Liebman, Nobuhisa Ishizuka, and Jeong-Ho Roh at Columbia Law School in a discussion on the comparative approaches, lessons, and the potential for trilateral cooperation.
