Globalisation after COVID: Business as Usual, or Not?
Watch #KAPTalks lecturer Beata Javorcik, Chief economist for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, discuss how the world recovers from the economic pains of the pandemic and whether it does so with a new approach.
More from the speaker
As the world comes out of the Covid-19 pandemic, what are the major forces that will shape globalization?
Will the more prominent role of the state undermine the level playing field? Will global value chains be reshuffled? How will policies to combat climate change affect cross-border flows of goods and investment? Does digitalisation matter for international trade and within country inequality?
