Aftershocks: The Geopolitics of the COVID-19 Pandemic, A Conversation with Thomas Wright

Join us for a conversation with leading national security expert and Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Thomas Wright on his new co-authored book, Aftershocks: Pandemic Politics and the End of the Old International Order. How have forces such as global economic inequality, nationalism, populism, and geopolitical competition influenced the response to COVID-19? What are the implications of the global pandemic for international development, global governance, great power competition, and international order? And what are some of the lessons learned from the pandemic as the United States and other countries around the world continue to struggle with this global health crisis? Dr. Wright will address these questions, among others, in this wide-ranging discussion.

Speaker: Thomas Wright, Senior Fellow and Director of the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution
Moderator: Nicholas Anderson, Associate Director for MAIA and Assistant Professor of International Affairs at the Elliott School
