The End Of The Old International Order

The Covid-19 Pandemic has fundamentally altered the way of life of people, businesses, and whole countries. That has been well documented. What we will focus on this episode is whether and how Covid changed the US-built and Rules-based international system. How did the pandemic affect the global economic and financial system? How did it affect the way that other countries perceive the united States and China? And, how does a post-Covid international order look like? To answer these questions and more, we are joined by Dr. Thomas Wright.

Dr. Wright is the director of the Center on the United States and Europe and a senior fellow in the Project on International Order and Strategy at the Brookings Institution. With co-author Colin Kahl, who now serves as Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Dr. Wright recently published a book titled Aftershocks: Pandemic Politics and the End of the Old International Order. This is what we will be basing the podcast on today and we are very lucky to have one of the authors come talk about it with us. We hope you enjoy this episode of the Hopkins Podcast on Foreign Affairs.
