COVID crisis changed significantly the global world today. Starting as a medical crisis generated by a very dangerous virus, this medical crisis became suddenly pandemic and affected all countries of the world. The response of the governments to this medical problem was almost the same: closing the major economic activities for a while and imposing isolation at home for the majority of the population. The economic effects were inherent and pushed the global economy into a potentially severe economic crisis. The recession time is very closed if this economic crisis is not properly managed in the next period.

The panel is focused on the change in the global economies following the COVID medical crisis. We recommend proposing papers covering the following topics (but the panel is not limited to them):

  • The solutions proposed for economic crisis;

  • The global economic contagion effect;

  • The impact on the living conditions;

  • The geopolitical aspects;

  • The solutions for the government;

  • The changes in the global financial markets;

  • The long term effect of this medical crisis;

  • The impact of the crisis on the free trade and international investments.
