Putting the brakes on international development?

This event is organized by the Department of Global Business and Trade and will be held online only

Growing public discontent with globalization has led to increased nationalist and protectionist policies in economies around the globe. These policies affect how companies operate internationally, especially with regard to their global value chains, resulting in important implications for international development. In this panel, experts discuss the potential effects of a slower globalization or de-globalization on the economic development of emerging and developing countries.
