For the seventh year running, Global Outlook Norway gathers eminent speakers to give a global perspective on international affairs and business trends.
The world has changed a lot since we started to plan the 2020 edition of Global Outlook. The conference has always been related to Arendalsuka, a week of societal and political debate in Arendal. Arendalsuka is however cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions, but the conference is more topical than ever before.
So, the Global Outlook partners University of Agder, GCE NODE, Gard and Eyde Cluster plan for a different conference, in which we combine a physical and a digital presence.
Emerging trends in global politics and business for the coming decade are increasingly visible as Covid-19 lock-downs end and attempts at economic recovery are made. China’s ascent as a superpower is further bolstered, while the US’s role as a global leader is weakened. Relations between the two countries remain tense.
This event takes stock of the two countries’ relations post-Covid 19 and explores the likelihood of enhanced cooperation versus intensifying conflict in global politics. We discuss the future of global trade and the extent to which tensions in global politics may derail upcoming climate negotiations and the broader sustainability agenda.
