Corona Crisis and International Order: Implications and Scenarios
The study starts from a hypothesis that the Covid-19 crisis is likely to leave traces on the global order, which may last for many generations, with a clear change in the patterns of social relations within countries, and patterns of international relations in the global system. Since hegemony and leadership constitute the most prominent features of the global system, over which the international superpowers that control the course of global events, struggle, the debate is raging about the possibility that the world will witness a change in the centers of control. Here, an important question arises: Will the international order after Covid-19 be the same as before it, or will it witness changes at the level of its features and positions of its actors?
