GLOBAL EPICENTRE AND REPERCUSSIONS FOR EUROPE

Twenty years ago the European Union defined a vision for its southern neighbours that consisted in building a ring of well-governed, prosperous and stable friendly countries. The frustrated Arab Springs of 2011, the migration crisis of 2015 and, more recently, the upsurge in tension surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict have turned that vision into a utopia that seems unrealisable in the short term. Is it possible to lay the foundations for a different geopolitics in which geographical proximity is synonymous with cooperation rather than conflict?

Roundtables: Geopolitics of a Liquid Fragmented World

16 - 30 MAY, 2024

The international order created in the wake of the Second World War is showing signs of obsolescence, and rather than affording any glimpse of an alternative world order, competition among the major powers and the strengthening of non-state actors point towards an order that is not only more complex but also more fragmented. The aim of this roundtable series is to analyse how the liquid world and geopolitics coexist in terms of three concentric circles: Europe, its neighbours and global connectivity.

This roundtable series is co-organized with The Social Observatory - "la Caixa" Foundation

Academic Coordinator: Esther Barbé (UAB-IBEI)
