COVID-19 and the End of Technological Innocence Politique étrangère, Vol. 85, No.2, Summer 2020

It accelerates and amplifies trends that were emerging before the crisis, such as the central and growing role of cyberspace, the normalization of surveillance capitalism, or the sharpening of Sino-American rivalry. Europe is becoming a major battleground between Washington and Beijing. Maintaining European sovereignty will require significant investments, particularly in 5G.

Thomas Gomart is Director of Ifri.
