Both Spain and the UK have been hit hard by the pandemic. What lessons can we learn from the way governments and societies have responded? What will be the longer-term consequences for our economies and communities? How are the educational and cultural sectors responding? What will ‘back to normal’ look like when restrictions on movement are lifted?
To discuss these and other questions raised by British Spanish Society members our panel comprises:
