Michael Lind, Professor of Practice, Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of Texas

Samuel Moyn, the Henry R. Luce Professor of Jurisprudence at Yale Law School and a Professor of History at Yale, will moderate.

The talk is part of a virtual discussion series on COVID and the Global Order co-sponsored by the Yale Law School Center for Global Legal Challenges & the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs.

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic has cost hundreds of thousands of lives. In the process, it has placed new stresses on an already fragile global order. In the early days of the pandemic, the failure of the World Health Organization to stem the spread of the virus led many to question the efficacy of global institutions to address global threats. Many nations tried to prevent the spread of the virus by shutting their borders to travel. The failure of a coherent global response has laid bare how much global institutions had come to rely on a United States that, in this instance, abdicated its role as the world’s indispensable nation. This series will ask how the coronavirus pandemic has affected the global order and whether these effects will last long after the pandemic itself is finally over.
