The COVID-19 pandemic significantly transformed the development of the world and its regions. The Western and the Eastern countries responded differently to the pandemic. The Western countries saw increasing economic hardship and social disturbances, which complicated the implementation of effective anti-crisis measures. In contrast, the steps taken in most Eastern countries were timely and effective, and, most importantly, adequate to the seriousness of the threat. The consequences will affect the internal political and economic development of different countries, as well the scale and depth of cooperation at the regional and the transregional levels, the essence of global processes, transforming the phenomenon of globalization.

 

The conference aims to analyze the main changes that have taken place since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as its aftereffects for the future development of various countries, regions and the world.
