Title: Geoeconomics in the 21st Century

Abstract: Globalisation was an economic success story for the last decades. Will this still be the case for the 21st century? Political management of globalisation has been less successful. The open, rules-based global economic order did not make the world a safer, more stable and more peaceful place. Populism is rising, democracies are under pressure, from the inside and the outside. Economic dependencies and tools are used increasingly for geopolitical goals. What are the implications for the world economy?  Europe faces new geoeconomic challenges ranging from protectionism abroad to import dependencies on strategic resources. What are the consequences for Europe as an economic area? What are the best strategies to make Europe more resilient?

Moderation: Gabriel Felbermayr (WIFO and WU)
