The direct impact of COVID-19 has been severe and far reaching. As we continue to grapple with the pandemic, the broader indirect impact of the coronavirus is becoming more pronounced:

  • Underlying social tensions are becoming inflamed leading to increased instances of civil unrest
  • Existing trends such as Black Lives Matter are being exacerbated by the virus and feeling of discontent
  • Actors are capitalising on the distraction to enact radical change
  • Geo-political relations are becoming strained
  • The race to find a vaccine has taken on a nationalistic edge

Join us on 8th October, as we discuss the indirect impact of COVID-19. Gain insights into how organisations can mitigate the effect on their assets, people and revenue streams in 2020 and beyond.

This session will draw on a number of current and past examples of major events. There will be a Q&A to provide for an interactive and engaging session.


This event is relevant for any BritCham member with an interest in:

  • The broader societal implications of COVID-19
  • The geo-political outlook of Asia and further afield
  • The potential for civil unrest and political violence in the region


  • How crisis situations impact people, organisations and nation states
  • Why the indirect impact of COVID-19 is more substantial than the direct impact
  • How COVID-19 is inflaming tensions at a local, national and global level
  • How the political violence threat landscape in Asia is evolving in 2020
  • What you can do to protect your assets, people and revenue streams
