The World After Coronavirus: A Pardee Center Video Series

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global crisis of unprecedented scale, with aftershocks that will be felt in virtually every aspect of life for years or decades to come. The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future at the Pardee School of Global Studies is pleased to present “The World After Coronavirus,” a video series featuring more than 100 interviews with leading experts and practitioners from Boston University and across the world, exploring the challenges and opportunities we will face in our post-coronavirus future.

The series is hosted by Prof. Adil Najam, the Inaugural Dean of the Pardee School of Global Studies and former Director of the Pardee Center. Each episode is around five minutes long, and is an edited version of a slightly longer conversation between Dean Najam and our featured guest.

During Boston University’s 2020 Alumni Weekend, the Pardee Center and the Pardee School of Global Studies co-hosted “World in Flux,” a three-part webinar series drawing on the video series. The webinar series featured panels of Pardee School faculty exploring three broad themes from the video series: the future of global politics, the future of global economics, and the future of global values. The events were broadcast live on the Pardee School’s YouTube channel, and the recordings are available to watch here.
