Dec 08, 2020

Twenty-nine LBJ School authors have come together to craft interdisciplinary and resilience-based policy solutions, published today in one toolkit called "Resiliency in the Age of COVID-19". This toolkit comes as researchers from across The University of Texas at Austin continue to offer first-of-its-kind groundbreaking research and discovery in the fight against COVID and its long-lasting impacts on public health, business, and the future of governance. Clements Center Executive Director Will Inboden's contribution to this toolkit includes an essay on Intelligence and National Security, "The World that COVID Made: What Should American Foreign Policy Do?", in which he examines the impact COVID-19 will have on the future of global order. Inboden looks at the disruption and damage COVID-19 has caused, but also considers potential opportunities for foreign policy.
