The main issues addressed in this article will be how the current pandemic will conclude, what the consequences will be for the world and Turkish politics, and how will the pandemic will affect government actions as well as any changes caused. The article will argue that states, national and international organizations, and individuals will inevitably change their hierarchy of priorities eventually in search of a new normal. Moreover, although the outbreak does not necessarily have to lead to a new era, the article forecasts that a new era will begin characterized by an increase in public authority in politics and authoritarian tendencies. The influence of COVID-19 on the international system, global governance and cooperation, the rise of the nation-state, globalization, and strategic priorities will be discussed within the framework of these claims and axioms.
