A New EU, A New World?

Rome & Online-September 23




The world is facing a concurrence of crises: the war in Ukraine and the ongoing recovery from COVID-19 on top of the effects of climate change.

While differing very much in nature, these crises all have a decisive effect on economic and monetary policy. With our conference, we seek to develop a deeper understanding of how these transformational crises are likely to impact Europe and the international order focusing on what a sustained geopolitical fragmentation and economic deglobalization could mean in the long term.
