We at Foreign Affairs have recently published a number of pieces regarding the coronavirus pandemic. To complement these articles, we decided to ask a broad pool of experts for their take. As with previous surveys, we approached dozens of authorities with deep specialized expertise relevant to the question at hand, together with a few leading generalists in the field.
