As COVID has persisted it has strained national relations in some ways and strengthened them in others. International affairs have persisted out of necessity; for sharing pandemic-relevant information which has allowed for tremendous scientific collaboration and a kind of science diplomacy to emerge. Yet despite this cooperative approach the pandemic has also shown nations putting their own interests first, allowing tensions and security concerns to persist. Defining science diplomacy for the near term will be central to the panel discussion. Specifically how to foster greater citizen engagement, and how to build strategic partnerships that allow nations to serve global interests while concurrently serving their own.
