What World post-COVID-19? Three Scenarios

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted May 21, 2020 | Atlantic Council, Mathew Burrows, Peter Engelke

As of late March 2020, scientists had identified eight strains of Covid-19, all closely related. Mathew Burrows and Peter Engelke suggest in their report for the Atlantic Council that the virus may become a “recurring fact of life,” like the ordinary flu, but much deadlier. International bodies designed to safeguard public health are weak and unable to contain the crisis, and the Trans-Atlantic alliance is fraying as nations turn inward and close borders.  The authors take a preliminary look at the geopolitical implications of a crisis that is still unfolding, and sketch three scenarios for possible post-COVID-19 global systems.
