Beyond Globalization & Deglobalization

Why is globalisation, as we have pursued it in recent years, no longer a sustainable project today? Is nationalistic capitalism in countries like the USA, Hungary or Brazil a reaction to the unregulated international market system? Is a certain degree of de-globalisation a prerequisite to overcome the (climate) crisis? Why is it important to overcome spatial fetishism when talking about global problems? And can neoliberal globalization be overcome without strengthening certain borders, while eroding others?

These questions and others form part of a series on webinars that the International Karl Polanyi Society is organizing in 2020 and 2021. As a starting point for the series serves the article “The Political Trilemma of Social-Ecological Transformation. Lesson’s from Karl Polanyi’s ‘The Great Transformation'”, written by IKPS-President Andreas Novy. Have a look at our previous and upcoming webinars below!
