Co-operation or Conflict?

David Runciman, Helen Thompson and Hans Kundnani

David and Helen talk to Hans Kundani, from Chatham House, about whether the Covid-19 pandemic is driving the world together or pushing it further apart. From US-Chinarelations to tensions within the EU, we discuss how coronavirus is exacerbating existing tensions and how it might overcome them. Are we going to see new forms of international co-operation? What does it mean for globalisation? And is the politics of competence making a comeback?
