Hans Pung

Matthew Moss, Associate, Global Philanthropic, interviews Hans Pung, President, RAND Europe.

RAND Europe is a not-for-profit public policy research organisation that helps improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis. Hans and Matthew discuss the long term impact the pandemic could have on education for this generation of youth and the impact of mental health on society during the pandemic. Research shows the inequality for both education and mental health for disadvantaged communities around the globe. But it’s not all bad news, there’s some research highlighting steps we could take to mitigate some of the long term impacts.
