Event description

Description

The consensus behind the free flow of trade, people and capital around the world is seemingly breaking down

The backlash against globalisation has been apparent in developed economies, where uneven gains from openness and integration – alongside the unprecedented pace of technological change – explain some of the recent political upheavals.

But have we reached a turning point? Is the current model for rules-based multilateralism unravelling? Who will be the winners and losers?

A panel of leading international experts convene at London Business School to discuss globalisation and its future at a time when trade, integration and sovereignty questions are crucial, and understanding how consensus forms and shifts is key.

Join us to dispel any hype around the globalisation debate and understand its real impact on the economy, business and investment.


Should globalisation be rolled back, or can it be saved?

What does it mean for business and investors?
