The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a major disruption to the way policy making and analysis of such policies takes place. With most debates having migrated to on-line platforms, the nature of debate and the subjects of analysis have changed as well.

This panel — populated by policy makers, think tankers and foreign affairs advocates — looks to explore how the COVID-19 crisis is affecting short and long-term foreign policy and seeks to tease-out answers to an assortment of questions including:

  • How COVID-19 is re-nationalising international political life?

  • What constraints has and will (in the long term) COVID-19 place on key foreign affairs issues and their accompanying debates?

  • Will the impact on intra-European disruptions (re: the closure of the Schengen space and the reduction in the free movement of labour, goods and services etc.) be long-lasting?
