Online Expert Chat, 23-24 November 2020

How can we adapt? 2020 brought a new challenge that affected international relations – COVID-19. What are the future pandemics and unknown threats that can affect security and development in the world? We also need to understand whether we are not missing the critical developments that undermine our security, development, and international relations, such as Radicalism, Religious and Political Extremism, Populism.
