Summary/Abstract: The Corona virus outbreak, the largest epidemic the world has faced in recent times, has reached dimensions that will have an impact on the future of the global system. The fact that -as of today- the epidemic has been affecting the whole world for more than a year and that it is expected to continue in the near term has been a factor that strengthens this effect. This epidemic has led to serious speculation about the shape of the globalization phenomenon, which is already a highly controversial issue, and the structure of the international system in this context. In particular, the unilateral attitudes and behaviors of the states in the early stages of the epidemic (closing borders, restrictions on international trade, vaccine nationalism, travel bans, authoritarianism tendencies, etc.) have reignited the debate between the pro-globalizationists and their opponents. On the one hand, opponents of globalization have started to defend that with this epidemic, the phenomenon of globalization will no longer continue as expected, and that states will seriously inhibit globalization by pursuing policies in one area as introverted and self-sufficient. On the other hand, the pro-globalizationists have started to defend that the world now appears to be completely intertwined with the influence of globalization, that globalization is now on an irreversible path and that the international community has to cooperate more due to the difficulties encountered in the epidemic. However, the conclusion is that the discussions on the field will take place between these two opinion supporters in the near future. In this context, the structure of international organizations and their future roles will be determined within the framework of these discussions. After all these discussions, it is also possible that a middle ground will emerge between both approaches. While globalization was going on, there were already segments that wanted to preserve local values (identity culture, etc.), and these developments could lead us towards the localization of globalization. With the risk of homogenization melting in the crucible of globalization disappears, it may be possible to enter a period that can be expressed as a 'localized globalization' movement.
