I am delighted to announce the International Symposium: "Globalization in a Post-COVID World: Retreat or Revival?" which has been organized by the Foundation for Law and International Affairs and the School of Foreign Studies, East China University of Political Science and Law.
Description of the Event: The worldwide pandemic caused by the COVID-19 has had a significant impact on international finance, trade, politics, and other related fields. Will these consequences change the fate of globalization? Some scholars believe that we will see a further retreat from hyper-globalization as citizens increasingly look to national governments to protect them and states and firms seek to reduce future vulnerabilities. Others believe that if the pandemic shocks us into recognizing our real interest in cooperating multilaterally on the big global issues facing us, it will have served a useful purpose.
Symposium participants include 39 speakers from 11 countries in the fields of law, trade, politics, environment, education, foreign studies, youth actions, international development, and other related fields. They will facilitate dialogues and try to unravel the uncertainties facing us and work towards a clearer picture on the fate of globalization.
