About this book

Pandemics, Science and Policy analyses the World Health Organisation's (WHO) management of the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic. Abeysinghe illustrates the ways in which the WHO's account was vulnerable to contestation, and ultimately how uncertain risks can affect policy and action on the global level.

About the authors

Sudeepa Abeysinghe is a Lecturer in Global Health Policy in the School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh, UK.

Reviews

“Tightly argued from sociological theory, the book, part of the ‘Palgrave Studies in Science, Knowledge and Policy’ series, will appeal to sociologists of global health and global health policy. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty.” (T. P. Gariepy, Choice, Vol. 53 (6), February, 2016)
