Globalization is under attack. Some argue for national protectionism in response to global crisis such as COVID-19 or economic recession. Some argue that globalization has exacerbated inequality in developed and developing economies. Is there a way forward, where global cooperation and development can tackle challenges like pandemics, climate change, and economic disruption that is sustainable and just and also respects national sovereignty? What would that roadmap look like? Join Julia Luscombe as she outlines the possibilities of a new direction in globalization.
