    Speaker(s): Peter Watkins, Professor Linda Yueh | COVID-19 was a significant supply shock for the global economy, among other things. With nations protecting their borders and even limiting some trade, will this accelerate a move toward deglobalisation? How should countries position themselves in a world where the US and China are also de-coupling? What does it mean for UK foreign and economic policies? Peter Watkins is an Associate Fellow for Chatham House and a Visiting Senior Fellow with LSE IDEAS. Linda Yueh (@lindayueh) is Chair of the LSE Economic Diplomacy Commission and Visiting Professor at LSE IDEAS. Michael Cox is Director of LSE IDEAS and Emeritus Professor of International Relations at LSE. COVID-19 represents an enormous challenge for the social sciences to help governments and non-governmental organisations respond to the economic and societal consequences of the pandemic. Part of LSE's response to this challenge is a series of online public events that will take place over the Summer Term. LSE IDEAS (@lseideas) is LSE's foreign policy think tank. We connect academic knowledge of diplomacy and strategy with the people who use it. Twitter Hashtag for this event: #LSECOVID19
