Abstract

 

In what is now regarded as a global crisis like no other, COVID-19 has rapidly brought on untold suffering to millions of people across the world and has significantly challenged global peace and security. In the Indo-Pacific region, states have had to confront not only the mounting threats to health and economic security, but also heightened major power rivalry and geopolitical risks. This webinar examines the implications of these multifaceted threats to regional order and draws out the imperatives for multilateralism and global governance.
