On October 6th, 2020 Foreign Policy for America hosted the last event in our members-only event series, The New Normal: Foreign Policy in a Post-Pandemic World, where we discuss the effects of the pandemic from a global, big-picture perspective.
How Does It End? Global Cooperation against COVID featured a deep-dive discussion on how the world is working together to respond to the pandemic. Recognizing that the security and well-being of Americans is inextricably tied to the security and well-being of people around the world, the U.S. has historically been a leader in tackling global crises. We addressed whether that is still the case and what U.S. leadership in the world should look like at a moment like this. FP4A board member Dr. Stephen Grand was joined by Bathsheba Crocker, CARE USA Vice President for Humanitarian Policy and Practice and former Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs, and Dr. Helene Gayle, President and CEO of The Chicago Community Trust and former President and CEO of CARE USA, to discuss how a more robust international response could prevent further spread of COVID-19, work to safely reopen borders, and increase cooperation on treatments and vaccines.
