- International relations ‘reset’ – hopes for crisis-induced renewal
- Assessments of global alliances
Our three expert speakers for this topic will be:
Dr Wang Huiyao, the Director and Co-Founder of the Center for China and Globalization.
Shada Islam, the Director of Europe and Geopolitics at Friends of Europe.
Suresh Prabhu, India’s Sherpa to the G20 and former Union Minister.
More about the webinar series:
The current global pandemic has dramatic implications for our lives, for global economics, and for geopolitics. Many of us are confined to our own homes for the next few weeks. Each day brings more uncertainty, especially surrounding the potential long-term effects the virus may have on multiple aspects. It will certainly have profound transformational effects on economics, geopolitics, and society.
Global dialogue is more necessary than ever at this time: global challenges indeed require international cooperation, not just national responses.
Throughout the month of April, the DOC will hold three webinars with speakers from around the world exploring the consequences of the coronavirus crisis and its potential transformational effects longer-term. Each webinar will focus on one of the three spheres that the DOC specialises in.

Each webinar will feature three speakers from various regions of the world discussing the potential impact that the crisis may have on their particular sphere and longer-term scenario.
