Covid-19 Publications

Seldom have insights been as commonly experienced among pundits across the globe as the realisation that international relations, political narratives, and macro- and micro-economics will never be the same again, after Covid-19. Post-pandemic, acting rationally and boldly while looking the facts in the face will decide how well a society or a nation emerges out of the crisis. Assumedly, more pandemics will appear in the near future—alongside other disasters, be these man-made or natural.

Penang Institute is doing its bit in various ways to contribute to the management of this crisis, one of which is to publish informed papers on the local situation and on how this relates to events and initiatives undertaken in other parts of the world.
