Talk Eastern Europe Episode 40: Will COVID-19 bring a new world order?
Our experience with the coronavirus demonstrates that pandemics know no borders. Nearly every country has been affected. The economic crisis that continues to take a toll on societies shows that more than ever solidarity and global solutions are needed for global problems. Will the COVID-19 pandemic force humanity to rethink the international system and global order? Can future crises be averted by better global coordination and a more robust system?
In this episode we invite you to take part in an intellectual exercise where we try to imagine what the global order may look like post-COVID-19. The episode features an interview with Andreas Umland, a senior expert at the Ukrainian Institute for the Future in Kyiv. The interview is based on the article titled “The coronavirus crisis as a critical juncture for Ukraine and the world” which was published online via New Eastern Europe and co-authored with Pavlo Klimkin – the former Ukrainian foreign minister.Listen to “Episode 40: Will COVID-19 bring a new world order?” on Spreaker.
