2 : 40 PM4:00 PMGeopolitical tectonics: the diverging frontiers in a world facing global challengesRoundtable

Event Details

Instability, confrontation and rising tensions seem to be the name of the geopolitical game worldwide: they are just reflecting the progressive transition between empires. With fragilised existing blocks and the on-going shift in global power, the time has come to revisit global relations, new international cooperation and regional build-ups to better apprehend this now established dimension of investment risk. Leaders from the main economic regions will share their insights on the multiple transformations at play, within old empires and across new ones.

Roundtable – Europe and the aftermath of the brexit

2019 appears as another key year for Europe. When some European leaders are calling for a European Renaissance in the context of the European elections, Brexit has led Europe into a situation that remains unsolved. After the European elections, what’s next for Europe?

Roundtable – Globalisation in the age of new empires

The balance of power is shifting across the world, creating a new geopolitics. New global powers have emerged from an old and fragilised established order. “East”, “West”, “North”, “South”, “Emerging” are all concepts being challenged, especially by the transition of power between United States and China. New international cooperation and regional build-ups, new financial institutions competing with the traditional Bretton Woods order and increased confrontations are examples of this changing picture… What does it hold for the future?
How will this shift of the tectonic plates a.ect the future of globalisation and international political and economic system?
