Globalisation: Where to from here?

Political developments in the past 12 months have engendered a paradigm shift in the way the world thinks about globalisation. Although the origins of this change are disputed, the backlash it is provoking is tangible and real.

At this event, which is part of The University of Nottingham’s Global Dialogues series, Professor Sir David Greenaway, Vice-Chancellor of The University of Nottingham, and Chief Economist of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Sergei Guriev, will help chart a course for the future of globalisation.

How can globalisation ensure more economic inclusivity in the future? Is total reform needed, or can we introduce policies that tinker around the edges? Will the nationalism fever that has become so prevalent in the West drift eastwards?
