12:35- 13:10 Q&A


The global spread of COVID-19 (a new coronavirus) has had a major impact on the politics, economics, and society of countries around the world, and there have been many discussions about the rapid rise of nationalism in various regions, and new terms such as "vaccine nationalism" and "coronationalism" have been coined. New terms such as "vaccine nationalism" and "coronationalism" have emerged. The rise of nationalism has been linked to the escalation of exclusion and racism against minorities and immigrants, and it has been treated as an incitement to interstate conflict in the context of strained U.S.-China relations. In addition, the viewpoint that each country's policy of prioritizing its own national interests prevents the cooperation among nations that would normally be necessary to prevent the spread of a pandemic and highlights the weaknesses of global health governance is also expressed. In other words, the argument goes, the rise of nationalism influenced by the COVID-19 epidemic has "strengthened nation-states and weakened interstate cooperation and transnational solidarity. What, then, is the relationship between the COVID-19 epidemic and national governments' responses to it, and how might this relationship affect the international order as a whole? With this in mind, this study attempts to examine the relationship between the COVID-19 pandemic and nationalism, and to use it as a starting point for an overview of the structure of international society and the international order.
