Seminar Covid-19 – Spring 2022
Final Essay
The essay consists in
an attempt at anticipating trends in global governance for the coming
decade and beyond, in three fields (Public Health, Economy, Global
Governance/Geopolitics). You should consider each of the fields and see whether
they are likely to be affected by the pandemic and, if so, what would be the resulting
changes/transformations (you could also anticipate that one or another of the
items in each field may not be affected). You should explain why/how you reach
such conclusion.
Within each field, you
may want to address the following items (and/or add other items that you
believe are relevant):
1. Public Health
– Standards and
Policies
– Research/science
(vaccines)
– Infrastructure
2. Economy
– Development aid
– Finance for recovery
– Production chains
and investment flows
– GDP ranking
3. Geopolitics /
Global governance institutions
– International
security

Multilateralism/intergovernmental cooperation
– Democratization
– Civil society
Please bear in mind
that we are addressing only processes with a global dimension (these may
include processes affecting regional groupings, but no national developments).
