After decades of increasing globalisation in trade, capital and information flows, we are currently experiencing a shift due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Russia’s war in Ukraine and divisions over the conflict. Disrupted supply chains, US-China trade tensions and the gradual demise of the World Trade Organization appear to be serious threats to globalisation and have altered the geopolitical landscape. Where is globalisation heading? Are we in a temporary phase of slowbalisation or is it the beginning of something different? Is a more multipolar world order developing or one divided between US and Chinese influence? And where does the EU fit in this new scheme? This Forum, featuring contributions by the speakers at the 2022 joint Intereconomics/CEPS conference, examines geopolitics and geoeconomics in a changing global order.
