INTERNATIONAL POLITICS – A PERIL FOR INTERNATIONAL SECURITY? WHAT SHAPED THE COVID-19 CRISIS

The narrative around the COVID-19 pandemic is significantly focused on its future implications. This article, however, explores the pandemic retrospectively. It does so by giving an account of the way the COVID-19 crisis was shaped from the very beginning to understand the drivers behind some of the nowadays’ national, regional, and international issues and what can be anticipated from the world’s leading actors beyond the crisis. China, the European Union, and the United States, among the front-liners of the pandemic and bearers of authority in international politics, are central to this discussion.
