Globalization at the Crossroads
What is the future of international development in a context where globalization seems irreversible and yet is, at the same time, the target of attacks from emergent political agendas from the Right and the Left? What roles will and should governments play in advancing progress towards the SDGs in an era increasingly defined by nationalist and populist rhetoric? How can development actors reinvent globalization so that it responds more effectively to the needs of those feeling left out or marginalized in the Global North and in the Global South?
The panel session took place during the SID Washington Annual Conference on May 31st, 2018 on The Future of Development in a Rapidly Changing World.
