About ECFR Quarantimes

We are all suffering from confirmation bias. Nationalists claim that the corona virus shows the superiority of the nation state; multilateralists claim the same for multilateralism; the end of globalization has also been proclaimed; for the left it is the end of capitalism; and for climate activists it confirms the need for more climate protections. ECFR Quarantimes enlists the brightest voices to help us think beyond the immediate response to the covid-19 crisis and overcome our pre-existing biases and beliefs to shape Europe's future role in the post corona world.
