7th Annual Issue: The Post-Covid World Dis/Order - Opportunities and/or Challenges?

June 2022

Paris, France

Issue Theme

Governments, economies, health systems and societies have been, and continue to be, significantly impacted by the Covid-19 Pandemic, the largest global crisis since the Second World War. As the world continues to combat the virus, the effects of the pandemic amplify existing and new systemic challenges within international relations, while formulating tools, methods and perspectives with which to carve a new path forward. In efforts to support governments on maneuvering the consequences of the pandemic, the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, launched the UN Response to Covid-19. The goal of the initiative is to address the socioeconomic, humanitarian and human rights aspects of the crisis, as well as proffer a favorable recovery process for all societies. This moment in history offers a unique lens through which to assess the comprehensive balance of risk, while simultaneously considering the range of opportunities which might be leveraged through the pandemic and its aftermath, with the aim of reconstruction, and building a more sustainable, equitable and prosperous world. The Post-Covid World will undoubtedly be a topic of discussion for years to come, not only in international relations, but within a myriad of disciplines throughout the world. In an attempt to discuss the various impacts, consequences, and potential solutions of the Post-Covid World Dis/order, the 7th annual issue of The Journal of International Relations, Peace Studies & Development, in conjunction with the AGS International Graduate Student Conference 2022, is accepting papers, from scholars and practitioners, that seek to expand our collective understanding from multiple angles-political, economic, social, cultural, legal and philosophical.
