Mobilizing Social Sciences against Infectious Threats

The goal of the new European project Sonar-Global is to build a sustainable international social sciences network to engage the active participation of the social sciences in the prevention and response to infectious threats and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). Its activities will foster complementarities and synergies among social scientists and other stakeholders for the governance of infectious threats and AMR.
