Economic Nationalism and Energy Security

Thursday, November 17 at 1pm ET

The COVID crisis and Russia’s war in Ukraine war have disrupted the global economy and led to a surge of economic nationalism: that is, efforts by governments to shorten supply chains, to protect consumers from the impact of inflation, and to diversify energy sources. Neoliberals decry economic nationalism as unwarranted interference in market forces, while progressives fear that it stokes xenophobia. This panel explores how these forces are playing out across Europe and Eurasia.
