While few industries have been spared by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic over the past three years, even fewer have been hit as hard as the tourism sector. After Covid-19 had made 2020 “the worst year in tourism history”, international tourist arrivals increased by just 11 percent in 2021, as travel restrictions remained in place for protracted periods in many parts of the world. Now, almost three years after the WHO declared Covid-19 a pandemic, optimism has finally returned to the industry. “Tourism always comes back,” UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololiksahvili said at the inauguration ceremony of ITB Berlin 2023, as the world’s leading tourism trade fair celebrates its first in-person event since 2019.

What Does Russia’s War on Ukraine Mean for the International Order? –, discourse March 7, 2023 0 (0)

One year ago, Russia unleashed a war that has brought horror to Ukraine. But there’s no doubt that the implications of this war reach much farther: It has shaken the European security order, and those effects may be felt on a global scale. The war has shown the danger of Russian revanchism and the risk of living next door to a power that embraces war as a coercive tool. It’s also highlighted the West’s role as a major protector of the democratic world and Ukraine’s advantages as a result of three decades of democratic development. Issues of reconstruction, war crimes, and sanctions might break new ground in the role these issues play in international diplomacy. The war could affect China’s ambitions and nuclear decisionmaking. Perhaps surprisingly, Russian isolation because of the war is less than some might think. All in all, Russia’s war on Ukraine is having major repercussions for the international order.
