Technology after COVID-19
COVID-19: Implications for Business
Written with the focus on business, work, and technology, this looks at "our latest perspectives on the coronavirus outbreak, the twin threats to lives and livelihoods, and how organizations can prepare for the next normal."
Has COVID-19 Impacted the Techlash?
Technology has played a critical—and debatably helpful—role during the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving us to wonder: Is this the end of the techlash?

COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of digital readiness, which allows business and people’s life to continue as usual during pandemics. Building the necessary infrastructure to support a digitized world and stay current in the latest technology will be essential for any business or country to remain competitive in a post-COVID-19 world.

Mental Health Concerns after COVID-19
How mental health care should change as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic
The unpredictability and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic; the associated lockdowns, physical distancing, and other containment strategies; and the resulting economic breakdown could increase the risk of mental health problems and exacerbate health inequalities.
Perspective: Mental Health and the Covid-19 Pandemic
Uncertain prognoses, looming severe shortages of resources for testing and treatment and for protecting responders and health care providers from infection, imposition of unfamiliar public health measures that infringe on personal freedoms, large and growing financial losses, and conflicting messages from authorities are among the major stressors that undoubtedly will contribute to widespread emotional distress and increased risk for psychiatric illness associated with Covid-19. Health care providers have an important role in addressing these emotional outcomes as part of the pandemic response.
This Is Not a Normal Mental-Health Disaster
If SARS is any lesson, the psychological effects of the novel coronavirus will long outlast the pandemic itself.
Racial Inequalities & Generational Disruptions after COVID-19
Pandemic pods for kids will make school inequality worse. It doesn't have to be this way.
'You can't begrudge parents for working outside the public school system to solve a problem created by an incompetent government. Yet children in pandemic pods are likely to flourish as kids whose parents have fewer resources may struggle, worsening inequality that plagues American education. In the wake of Black Lives Matter protests, which plenty of white parents joined with conviction, it is particularly jarring to see people with a long list of privileges dive headlong into pod planning without openly considering whether children who aren't their own will be left behind. '
Why U.S. Needs Black Lives Matter Movement Today
"And I think that not only does it speak to a level of solidarity that young white people have with poor and working-class black people, but I think it says something about their own lack of security in their future and, really, what is happening in this country because of the ways that the pandemic has exposed deep, deep and ingrained inequities."
How The Recent Black Lives Matter Movement Gained Increased White Support
"You have shared grievances. You have shared intensity. And you have this permission from the crowd. And pandemics, she said, have historically supercharged these things and led to political foment and civil disobedience."
Arts & Culture after COVID-19
The meat we eat is a pandemic risk, too
'To be clear, scientists believe the novel coronavirus originated in wild bats, not factory farms. But it has awakened us all to the crushing effect a pandemic can have on our lives. Now that we’ve come face to face with this reality, the question is: Do we have the political and cultural will to do something major — changing the way we eat — to sharply decrease the likelihood of the next pandemic?'
Quarantine has changed us — and it’s not all bad
'As anyone who’s ever tried a New Year’s resolution knows, maintaining new habits is hard. But psychologists who specialize in behavior change say there are things you can do now to make it more likely that you’ll succeed down the line. For instance, you can prime your environment, whether by setting up an automatically recurring monthly donation or putting running shoes by your bed to nudge you to go for that morning run. It’s also good to reward yourself each time you engage in the target behavior — but make it an intrinsic reward, not an extrinsic one. So instead of reaching for a smoothie after every run, pause to savor the extra energy and strength you feel.'
International Relations after COVID-19
The Irresistible Rise of Health Diplomacy
"Altogether, this rise of health diplomacy prompts a few questions: Why do states engage in aid initiatives at times of global uncertainty and when COVID-19 is rapidly spreading across the whole world, including in the same ‘donor’ countries that are providing specialists and equipment? Also, can such initiatives open new channels for dialogue and create opportunities that go beyond relief and tackle other dossiers?"
Could the Coronavirus Pandemic Revive International Cooperation?
"While history provides no definitive answers, it hints at three preconditions for resurrecting international cooperation from the ashes: new thinking, enlightened leadership and a favorable distribution of power."
How Americans Envision a Post-Pandemic World Order
"Many Americans are anticipating changes in the global balance of power and the importance of international cooperation even as the coronavirus outbreak continues to rage across the United States and around the world, according to three recent Pew Research Center surveys. Americans are divided in their outlooks, mainly along ideological lines, but are more united on opinions relating to China’s place in the world."
How the World Will Look After the Coronavirus Pandemic
Foreign Policy asked twelve leading thinkers about their global predictions, which include the end of globalization, a rise in nationalism, supply stability, and a new type of "pragmatic and protective internationalism."
