Abstract


“Changing Security Threats and Impacts of COVID-19 Pandemic in Global Politics” This study aims to highlight the COVID-19 pandemic effect on global politics in a critical view. Since December 2019, the world has seen the most significant threat that cannot be only studied with classical security approaches, based on a state-centric view but also needs a critical approach. The COVID-19 pandemic is a unique global threat that has affected all the actors in global politics, especially regarding their security. This study aims to look at how the COVID 19 pandemic affected individuals, genders, and societies in the risk groups of global politics, and how the state leaders reacted to them in this period of uncertainty. In six months, “war against a threat” was redefined by comprising health, food, human and gendered securities, also considering the massive environmental change in the globe. This global threat will affect the future.
