About the volume:
Within a span of a few months, the novel coronavirus has spread across the globe and firmly established itself as the biggest disease outbreak since the 1918 Spanish flu. The impact of COVID-19 will be pervasive and it will affect all segments of our lives. The disease’s most profound and consequential impact, however, will be felt in its ability to reshape the global order as it stands. As global actors are pushed deeper into ‘uncharted territory’, this volume of selected essays seeks to describe, investigate and critically analyse key factors that will shape the world’s journey to a post-COVID-19 era. At present, it is difficult to discern the shape, form or substance of the post COVID-19 world order. Nevertheless, by bringing together some of the best global minds to meditate on the issue, this edition aims to contribute to the expanding scholarship on COVID-19 and endeavours to inform academics, researchers, journalists and stakeholders on understanding the most pernicious, significant and world-changing event of our times.
