Coronavirus pandemic halts internationalisation – how the virus continues to impact globalisation
The backbone of internationalisation is partnerships with organisations, institutions, universities and multilateral networks that support student and scholar mobility. There is no doubt that globalisation is being affected with every passing day of the pandemic. However, one can hope that by joint efforts we will overcome the coronavirus crisis and undo the damage. Finland needs international talent, and it does have lots to offer.
