Professors in the Pub: Post-Corona Politics


Each month, join us online to have a drink and discussion with professors and other experts about important events happening in the world. Share your questions and your views, and join the long tradition of politics in the pub, online edition.

Covid-19 continues to impact close to every aspect of life all over the globe. Our individual concerns are mostly immediate and focused on getting through the current period. The world is not likely to return to how it was before the pandemic, though. What will politics and economics look like once the current crisis passes? Will states of emergency be rescinded, or will some remain in place, cementing authoritarianism in some countries? Will jobs that shifted to home-office come back to the buildings and cities that they vacated? What does this mean for urban development and housing? Will global supply chains return to more domestic bases? Will we be able to hold on to the incredible environmental improvements that quarantining has brought without the isolation of quarantine? Come discuss these questions and ask your own. 

The lead professor will be George Hays II, Chair of International Relations.
