LCIL Friday Lecture: 'Six Faces of Globalization: Who Wins, Who Loses, and Why it Matters' - Professor Anthea Roberts, School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet)
Globalization has lifted millions out of poverty. Globalization is a weapon the rich use to exploit the poor. Globalization builds bridges across national boundaries. Globalization fuels the populism and great-power competition that is tearing the world apart. When it comes to the politics of free trade and open borders, the camps are dug in, producing a kaleidoscope of claims and counterclaims, unlikely alliances, and unexpected foes. But what exactly are we fighting about? And how might we approach these issues more productively?

In this talk, Anthea introduces her book, co-authored with Nicolas Lamp, Six Faces of Globalization: Who Wins, Who Loses, and Why it Matters, exploring the interests, logics, and ideologies driving these intractable debates. Examining six competing narratives about the virtues and vices of globalization, Anthea and Nicolas provide a framework for understanding current debates about economic globalization and showcase a more integrative way of thinking about complex problems. Their approach not only helps enable us to understand where we have come apart but also how we might come back together.
