New book "Globalization, Political Economy, Business and Society in Pandemic Times"
The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced our society in an unprecedented way. Now when Stockholm University’s campus life is gradually coming back to normal, it is agreeable to see that a book entitled "Globalization, Political Economy, Business and Society in Pandemic Times" has been published.
The purpose of the book is to arrive at a holistic understanding of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on politics, economy, business, and society in a globalized world.
The scientific community acted swiftly to study COVID-19 and its various possible societal correlations. During the past year, a large number of academic journals started speedily publishing COVID-19 related articles, many of which have been made available to the public, contributing timely to new knowledge production and dissemination.
However, a multidisciplinary approach to the study of COVID-19 has been rare. This edited book contributes to the growing literature on COVID-19 through a multidisciplinary approach by addressing both macro and micro issues from both local and global angles in both critical and self-critical tones. The book consists of 21 chapters contributed by 32 researchers from a wide range of academic disciplines. The book offers interesting knowledge with important policy implications.
The book "Globalization, Political Economy, Business and Society in Pandemic Times" is a product of the 5th Emerging Markets Inspiration Conference (EMIC) at Stockholm University during May 14-15, 2020.
