Deglobalization: Disruptions and Opportunities

Deglobalization is the process of diminishing interdependence and integration of nation-states. It is widely used to describe the periods of history when economic trade and investment between countries decline. It stands in contrast to globalization, in which units become increasingly integrated over time, and generally spans the time between periods of globalization. Our Friday Speakers Series will focus on the disruptions deglobalization can cause to established economic and political relationships and alliances that have existed since the end of World War II and will explore if any opportunities exist to realign these relationships which may assist in creating a world order that pleases leaders and populations more than post Bretton-Woods.
