Future of Trade Conference

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.
