Pandemic crisis has highlighted challenges of a new level both to individual countries and international organizations, and to the principle of multilateralism in general. In 2021 it is expected that already existing global challenges like globalization process, rivalry between the great powers, populism, and doubts on effectiveness of international organizations, will rise.
