What impact will COVID-19 have on geopolitics and climate change? That is the question that Paul Rogers answers on the latest installment of Below the Radar Conversations. This is a video series that looks at the current situation of COVID-19 and what impact it will have on a variety of issues in our daily life locally and around the world.

In this conversation, Am Johal talks to Paul Rogers, professor emeritus of peace studies from Bradford University (United Kingdom) about the impact that COVID-19 has on geopolitics and climate change, his readings on the responses of individual countries to COVID-19, and how we might find a way forward together.
