Event Summary

Many scholars claim that globalization is dead, and that global trade has peaked. New concepts like friendshoring, homeshoring, deglobalization, and decoupling, tend to dominate this debate. Meanwhile, the World Trade Organization is in a crisis, adding to the sense that global trade is in trouble.

But is it really true that globalization is dead? And if yes, what consequences will that have on trade and economic cooperation between countries?
