ABSTRACT

COVID-19 and World Peace: An Overture to a New Era or Business as Usual?   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "The outbreak of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], which began at the end 2019 in China and led to more than two million infected by April 2020, is now recognized as an inflection point to longstanding international tensions, political relations, and even the conduct of war. Secretary-General of the UN António Guterres called for a 'global ceasefire'; a cessation of hostilities to free people, money and capabilities to fight COVID-19. Additional issues, such as climate change, economic cooperation, and social interaction during this crisis at this moment, are now recognized as being at a watershed moment. This snapshot investigates how the call by Secretary-General Guterres was answered, and how far and in what capacity the results of this response will impact upon the future."
