This event has now concluded. A full-length recording is available below.
In his book Aftershocks: Pandemic Politics and the End of the Old International Order (co-authored with Colin Kahn), Thomas Wright argues that rising tensions resulting from mismanagement of the global pandemic must be met by new modes of cooperation among liberal democracies.
But the democratic international order that took shape following World War II faces serious challenges—rising populism, accelerating climate change, growing inequality, and increasing friction with China—all of which have been exacerbated by the pandemic.
How can Europe and the United States cooperate to take on these many challenges? How can they work together to uphold democracy and promote international cooperation in the wake of a deadly and economically damaging global pandemic? Join us to hear insights from a panel of experts. Learn how Europe and the United States can partner on these important issues—and what that means for the future of international relations.
This event is presented by the Keough School of Global Affairs.
