The coronavirus crisis is likely to have profound and long-term economic consequences on the world’s dynamic as we know it. The current situation has led countries to focus again on the national level, and this will undoubtedly have an impact on globalisation and global value chains.

The Centre for Policy Studies was delighted to host a public webinar where we welcomed economist and author, Dr Dambisa Moyo, who was leading a discussion on ‘COVID and the world economy’. The event took place on Thursday 4th June at 3pm.
