Academics with a conviction: the importance of an open and accessible debate

Les Rencontres Économique in Singapore

Rencontres Économiques in Singapore 2019

“New Horizons for the World Economy ”
“Les nouveaux horizons de l’économie mondiale”

While globalization has been accelerating, voices arise against an ever more integrated global economy. Innovation and new technologies are seen as aggravating factors polarizing the world and increasing inequalities. In this increasingly uncertain context, what are the real pro and cons of globalization? How can we rethink its governance? What set of rules could revive trust and efficiency?

This necessary debate is too often captured by populists alone and there is an urgent need for a more rational and international discussion. This is our ambition for this new edition of Les Rencontres Économiques in Singapore.
