Globalisation and international relations in the era of covid-19

Despite the clear need to adopt coordinated and cooperative measures to limit diffusion of the virus and contain the economic and social impact, the main world powers have exacerbated the confrontation, accelerating a process of de-globalisation. The European Union stands out in this context, and the attempt to take a more central role in the international system represents an incentive to respond to the crisis resulting from the pandemic and other common challenges in a more cohesive manner.
