The Global: History and Effects

Globalization, once a 20th-century buzzword, is now a reality that has upended the movement of goods, capital and people. This theme sets out to track the history of the word, and to take into account its social effects and ramifications and how it has affected the players involved, from multinational corporations to a subsistence farmers.  It touches on pressing issues such as the migration crisis, the rise of populism, the economic crisis, and state interdependency. The Paris Center will also interrogate its own role in the new power configuration that is “the global.”
