COVID-19: The Future of Globalization and Development


WHEN November 10, 2020
6:30-8 PM WHERE Zoom Webinar Part of "COVID-19" WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

Globalization has been the most progressive force in the history of humanity, bringing more progress, more quickly, to more people than anything preceding it. And yet, globalization appears more unpopular than ever as it leads to more risks. COVID-19 will not kill globalization; on the contrary it will accelerate its growth and transformation. Globalization will increasingly be centered on East Asia, which accounts for half of the world’s population and the fastest growing economic region. The region's rapid recovery from the COVID-19 crisis and its increasing economic and political role, along with the relative decline of US economic and political power, will change the nature of globalization.
