ABSTRACT

'One World, Two Systems' Takes Shape During the Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has caused calamitous public health and economic crises that will leave deep marks on social and economic behavior and activity in the years to come. It has also exacerbated preexisting conditions, both domestic (social and economic inequality) and international (fragmentation of the postwar world order). The latter has been manifested in an intensifying competition between the United States and China for political and strategic influence. So far, this competition has unfolded mainly through the Sino-US trade war, which has undermined the multilateral rules-based trading system built around the World Trade Organization (WTO). It has, however, also spread to geopolitical and strategic arenas, quickly escalating during the pandemic."
