Neoliberal globalization is in deep crisis. After more than 30 years, with its emphasis on the progressive liberalization of international trade, investment and financial flows, this political paradigm might arguably approach its demise. Within the next ten years, the time window for enacting decisive action against the impending climate catastrophe will be closing. The decisions of the next few years will thus largely prefigure the fate of societies throughout the 21st century.
Against this situation, progressive social forces both in the academic community and civil society must not stand aside. The conference “Future of trade in a polarized world order” aims at contributing to transdisciplinary cooperation between the socially committed academic community and civil society to build a progressive agenda for international economic cooperation.
The conference aims at bringing stakeholders from academia, civil society and politics together to discuss analysis and visions on the future of trade and international economic cooperation. In a variety of formats, the different stakeholders will receive the opportunity to present and discuss papers, to debate current developments and to network.
