In February, the Ifri Center for Asian Studies and RIPS held a conference on the Asian security environment.
Two months later, it feels as if it was another era. Back then, Covid-19 had already raged in China, and cases of infection started to be reported throughout Asia and Europe. But nobody could have foreseen that the virus would soon develop into a pandemic with profound implications for all of us and for international relations. It is still premature to predict the exact consequences of this terrible epidemic for the global order and the strategic setting in Asia.
