The Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs, in partnership with Johns Hopkins University President Ron Daniels and the JHU School of Advanced International Studies, hosted a two-day virtual conference featuring experts from across Johns Hopkins’ schools, departments and programs along with scholars from outside the university to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on World Order.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic dealt a crippling blow to global public health while devastating the world economy. As Henry Kissinger recently warned, “The coronavirus epidemic will forever alter the world order.” Moments of great shock, however, can also provide an opportunity to boldly re-imagine our future to build a new and better world.

Building upon its existing America and the Future of World Order project, the Kissinger Center has commissioned research from cross-cutting thinkers who gathered at it’s mid-summer, two-day, virtual global forum to discuss and chart world order after COVID-19. Content presented at the Forum provides the basis for the upcoming book, COVID-19 and World Order: The Future of Conflict, Competition, and Cooperation, to be published by Johns Hopkins University Press in fall 2020.
