Nexus Between the COVID-19 Pandemic, International Relations, and International Security [open pdf - 614KB]
From the Document: "The extent to which other related global relationships, national entities, and supranational organizations have performed in the current case will only be clear in retrospect: it will quite possibly emerge that a combination of right- and left-wing polices - cherry-picking elements of travel and visa restrictions, greater health security and diplomacy investments, and other defensive and protective policy aspects from the two highly divergent sets of agendas -- will be the guiding paradigm for the decades to come. Despite the mutual antipathy between contemporary political perspectives in the United States, there are elements of each agendas -- what has been called bipartisanism, or post-partisanship -- that will be crucial to the future of humanity. Taking this forward in a proactive, positive, and productive manner requires that neither side be vilified."
