Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.
The post WWII ‘liberal order’ is fracturing in its Northern-Atlantic core: Doubt has been cast on NATO’s unequivocal readiness to stand together. Trade across the Atlantic, characterized by substantial (and perpetual) balances, is understood as unfair. The U.K. is struggling to leave the European Union. And within EU-Europe, to simplify, two cleavages become ever more prominent: Between North and South about issues of fiscal (and monetary) policy, and between East and West on how to respond to the migration crisis. The latter, itself, is significantly related to failed efforts at ‘nation-building’ in the Middle East, Europe’s near neighborhood. Finally, euro area member states cannot measure up to the task of making their union crisis-resilient.
In this workshop, speakers will discuss these deeply interrelated topics. Each session starts with an impulse (15 to 20 minutes), followed by three discussants (10 minutes), then opening to participants’ contributions. The discussions will be chaired Hans-Helmut Kotz (CES) and Dante Roscini (Harvard Business School).

Why is the community of shared values shrinking? Is it?
