The Shifting Global Economic and Political Landscape:

Fragmentation or Integration?

21.02.2017 | 10:00 - 12:00 | DGAP Berlin | Nur für geladene Gäste



High-level seminar by the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). After two generations of increasing global interconnectedness, the post-World War II order is fraying. The benefits of globalization are being questioned. Slow global growth, increasing inequality, refugee flows, and the rise of nationalist and protectionist positions pose difficult challenges to global interconnectedness.
