The COVID Charter: A New Development Model for a World in Crisis is a 13-page article in this month's Foreign Affairs magazine and is the topic of today's discussion. The article was written by Rajiv J. Shah. Shah is President of the Rockefeller Foundation, and from 2010 to 2015 he served as Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Articles are chosen to provide significant background about a current international relations issue affecting American foreign policy.
