COVID-19 and the Indo-Pacific: Emerging Trends and Opportunities

The Strategic Studies Program (SSP) of the University of the Philippines Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS), in partnership with Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Philippines, invites you to the webinar, “COVID-19 and the Indo-Pacific: Emerging Trends and Opportunities,” happening on 28 July 2021, 10:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. (PH), via Zoom.

About the Webinar

This webinar seeks to examine the transformations that have taken place in the strategic environment—such as on international politics, the economy, and the security architecture—as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and to identify its consequent challenges and opportunities for the Philippines and the Indo-Pacific.
The webinar takes off from the discussions in the Katipunan Dialogue, a podcast series produced as the sixth iteration of the SSP’s annual Katipunan Conference. Launched in 2015, the Katipunan Conference serves as a platform for discussing current and emerging issues that impact Philippine foreign policy and the region. It undertakes a strategic scan of the international and regional environment from multiple perspectives to produce practical and informed policy opinions and decision-making aids for various stakeholders.
