Abstract

The Coronavirus outbreak of 2019-20 has left governments, markets, and civil society reeling through disruptions and damage that shall heal at differing intervals and to differing degrees around the world. The post-Coronavirus economy and polity may, however, be designed and structured based on lessons drawn from the outbreak, as well as on international reactions to the hardships that ensued in its wake. This paper raises 7 points of discussion for international policymakers as the outbreak subsides, aiming to generate a debate around greater post-corona value creation for the public.
