We’re delighted to invite you to join us for an online webinar discussion with Professor Philip Booth, Dean of the Faculty of Education, Humanities and Social Sciences at St Mary’s University and IEA Senior Academic Fellow, from 1pm – 2pm (BST) on Wednesday 29th April. He will be discussing ‘Globalisation and Coronavirus – throwing out the baby with the bathwater’.

Over the past century, Globalisation has been key in helping to reduce poverty and has led to millions, if not billions, of lives being improved all across the world. Since Coronavirus was declared a global pandemic, we’ve seen countries shutting down, limiting flights and cutting off links with the outside world. Borders have closed and whole regions have been quarantined. But what does this mean for the future of Globalisation? With calls for greater self-sufficiency, national food security and less international travel what will the short and long term implications be and how is this likely to change the day-to-day lives of people all across the world? This webinar will outline the positive aspects of globalisation, rising threats to Globalisation over the last ten years and how Coronavirus might make matters more challenging for those who support free trade and globalisation.

Places are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis. If you would like to join us for our online webinar please register by clicking here.
