with Historian Lars Trägårdh. American-Scandinavian Foundation invites you to a follow-up online discussion with Swedish historian, author and social commentator Lars Trägårdh as he discusses the current situation in Sweden in controlling the coronavirus. Sweden adopted a controversial approach to the pandemic, avoiding mandatory lock-down and instead stressing voluntary distancing and keeping the country open, most importantly pre- and primary schools. Initially Sweden experienced higher numbers of infection and death rate than many of their Nordic counterparts; since June, however, both infection and mortality rates are radically down.

Hear how this strategy has evolved in Sweden as Europe at large is experiencing, or bracing for, a second wave. In conversation with ASF President Edward Gallagher, Trägårdh will explore the nation’s current situation and the future going ahead.

Please send audience questions ahead of the discussion to info@amscan.org. Select questions will be chosen for a Q&A following the conversation.

The discussion will later be available to stream on YouTube.
