The pandemic has affected people globally and both lead to a renewed show of solidarity and cooperation between nations, while at the same time leading to the renewal of resentments and suspicions. Meanwhile, the usual diplomatic channels of communications and all in-person meetings during international conferences had to shift online with significant consequences. One thus has to ask how the pandemic has influenced multilateralism, diplomacy, and international law.
This webinar is organized by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and the University for Peace (UPEACE).
The objective of the webinar on "The Future of International Law and Diplomacy - Where Do We Go After COVID?" is to raise participants' awarenes of how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the international relations, especially with regard to international law and diplomacy.
