Event Details

Join the University of Waterloo in partnership with CBC Kitchener-Waterloo as we go Beyond The Headlines to discuss the realities unfolding in our post-COVID world. 

This two-part, online series will feature in-depth conversations with researchers who will discuss the issues you are reading about in the news to make sense of the broader social, political and economic implications.


Globalization in our post-COVID world

The pandemic has revealed vulnerabilities and opportunities of our globalized world. Will we see new political trends internationally? Will local trade be encouraged? Will we still be able to travel the world? University of Waterloo researchers will discuss the ways that politics, trade and tourism will be influenced.
