Recently, Head of FES Asia Department Marc Saxer along with Professor Ali Riaz joined together on the television talk show Tritiyo Matra for a constructive discussion on how COVID-19 is reshaping the geopolitics around the world.
The corona crisis has revealed the geopolitical, economic, ideological, and cultural fault lines of our time. It has made it clear that we need to rethink the structure of the globalized world. In an interconnected world, pandemics can and do spread across borders at high speed and global supply chains can all too easily be cut. Thus, our financial markets are getting vulnerable. How will this affect geopolitics? Is this an end of globalization?
