About this Event

Globalization is a highly contested concept, yet it has affected our lives in many different areas. Globalization has the potential for both positive and negative effects. The latter giving rise to nationalist sentiments around the globe. In this debate we will explore globalization and its complexities more in depth with prominent speakers.

Solutions start with definitions, so here’s an overview of the essential meanings to keep on hand for our live debate on July 24, 2019.
