Globalization 2.0: Path to German-American Prosperity?

Thursday, September 22, 2022, 10:00 - 11:00 am EDT // 16:00 - 17:00 CEST

As economies around the world are steadily recovering from Covid-19 pandemic disruptions, they are facing new challenges that are calling into question the effectiveness of the existing international economic order. Would a new “Globalization 2.0” with updated guidelines for trade, investment, climate, and technology better promote U.S., German, and broader European values and interests in an era when economics and national security are increasingly interconnected? And are institutions like the World Trade Organization up to the task of advancing transatlantic prosperity, or is there a need to invent new arrangements based on different rules, issues, and members?

This webinar is part of the AICGS project “The Importance of the Transatlantic Partnership in Times of Global Crises” and is generously funded by the Transatlantik-Programm der Bundesrepublik Deutschland aus Mitteln des European Recovery Program (ERP) des Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Klimaschutz (BMWK) (Transatlantic Program of the Federal Republic of Germany with Funds through the European Recovery Program (ERP) of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK).
