The Geopolitical Implications of the COVID Crisis with Professor Matthew Goodwin

In this podcast we speak to Professor Matthew Goodwin, one of the country’s leading political scientists, on a variety of geopolitical issues and trends.  We cover:

  • what the political fallout of the last crisis might tell us about the fallout from this crisis;
  • how tensions between different generations may be on the increase and the perception of wealth in a post Covid world;
  • the challenges facing the Eurozone and the longer-term outlook for the bloc;
  • how Covid-19 might affect Trump’s re-election prospects in November;
  • the perception of China and why will be a pivotal issue in the race for the White House, and;
  • Boris Johnson’s premiership and what this tells us about contemporary conservatism.
