The theme of Aarhus Symposium Focus 2017 is “Globalisation in Reverse – the Danish Response”.
How can Denmark prosper as a small open economy in a closing world? The foundation of global trade is changing. After decades of increasing economic integration, Western societies are experiencing a backlash against globalisation. As countries work toward national rather than global agendas, the international society is in danger of facing change in its most treacherous form; when progress is suddenly eroded or even destroyed. This leaves Danish policymakers and corporate leaders with a pressing question: Would Denmark be able to withstand such changes?
On October 30, 2017, a panel of four competent speakers with diverse backgrounds will share their perspective and we encourage you to join the debate. The speakers will be announced this September.
