After months of quarantines, some countries are beginning to shift out of confinement. But the world we knew is already a thing of the past. The health pandemic has laid bare global disparities and the vacuum of international leadership while accelerating nationalist and authoritarian trends. The ripple effects of COVID-19 are likely to amplify further throughout global trade, politics, and economics. Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations, joins Altamar to discuss the features of a post-coronavirus world. His new book, The World: A Brief Introduction, provides a window into foreign relations of the present and future. Haass is a veteran diplomat, and global policy expert. During his career, he served as the key US player in Northern Ireland, Afghanistan, South Asia. One of America’s truly global voices, Haass is the author or editor of fourteen books on US foreign policy.
