Covid-19 not only interrupted international travel for people but also seriously interrupted global trade routes. In this ‘hot topic’ seminar hosted by the Europe Institute at the University of Auckland, a panel of experts discuss their visions of global economic integration in a post-Covid world.
Before Covid, trade and investment flowed around the world through the pipelines of treaty agreements between governments and multi-state entities, like the EU. During the Covid emergency, we observed these governments’ activism in using their ‘visible hand’ to shape trade flows. Aimed at a general audience, our panel of experts will reflect on the question: which will be the temporary effects of Covid-19 on economic integration and which will be permanent?
