The Corona pandemic, which affected all continents within a few months, posed a global threat of unprecedented proportions. The vulnerability of people in a highly networked world became clear. Inequality within and between societies is intensified, not only, but especially in the Global South. At the same time, the realisation that "no one is safe until everyone is safe," has highlighted the need for solidarity and increased international cooperation, in the field of global health, among other things.
The Dresden Forum for International Politics therefore asks what lessons we can learn from the Corona pandemic for future global cooperation and what course to set in the field of international health international health policy, but also beyond that, are now necessary. What has been the international cooperation at the beginning of the pandemic? How can we act together more quickly in future pandemics and leave no one behind? And what preventive measures should be taken to prevent future pandemics or limit their consequences?
