COVID-19 and World Order: The Future of Conflict, Competition, and Cooperation

Foreword by Ronald J. Daniels
Introduction and edited by Hal Brands and Francis J. Gavin
Available Open Access on Project MUSE & in paperback

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has killed hundreds of thousands of people and infected millions while also devastating the world economy. What will a post-COVID world order look like? Johns Hopkins University convened experts from within and outside of the university to discuss world order after COVID-19. Much work needs to be done to improve our national and global health capabilities, and to elevate health threats to a higher priority in our national—and international—security frameworks. Experts in public health and medicine, economics, international security, technology, ethics, democracy, and governance imagine a bold new vision for our future.

See live keynotes and conversations by JHU President Ron Daniels, former Google Chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt, former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence H. Summers, among other notable experts determined to find the best path forward.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Maryland Food Bank, in support of Johns Hopkins' food distribution efforts in East Baltimore during this period of food insecurity due to COVID-19.
