International Conference "Understanding Globalization"
Eurac Research, Bozen/Bolzano
Globalization is stagnating - or at least it is changing its face. The global economy is no longer growing as fast as before, states are increasingly orienting themselves towards the national level and trade agreements are breaking down. Worldwide social imbalances intensify dissatisfaction, migration flows increase. Global forms of terrorism, shifting political power constellations and wars increase insecurity and fear. Climate change and shrinking resources threaten the ecological equilibrium. Rapid technological development is changing familiar norms, values and limits.
Many of these forces and processes no longer seem manageable; it is increasingly difficult to understand the world as a whole. Where is the world going? What role do the regions play in this? What does this process mean for South Tyrol? The Center for Advanced Studies of Eurac Research invited renowned experts from South Tyrol and abroad to discuss the future of globalization and the challenges it poses for the regions.
