2ND ANNUAL GLOBAL SUMMIT
Rise of Inward-Looking Societies: New Models of Cooperation
With the rise of inward-looking societies, what new political and cultural narratives are needed at this moment around the globe? Meridian 180 members will gather in Brussels, Belgium on May 19-21, 2017 to explore new paradigms and models to answer this question at our 2nd Global Summit. The theme of the gathering is Responses to the Rise of Inward-Looking Societies: New Models of Cooperation, and throughout the three-day conference, Meridian 180 members will examine four idea streams on culture and migration, energy, local vs. global tradeoffs, and security. Interactive video will play a central role in all four idea streams, as participants are challenged to explore, experiment, and bend in inquiry. Please remember your smartphone and/or tablet! Conference PrecisThe global village is observing the rise of a village of a new type--a village of inward-looking societies. In Europe, in America and in Asia industrialized societies have to face growing inward trends. In the common understanding of globalization, a world of inward-looking societies is not at all part of the picture. Inward-looking societies are however already reshaping cooperation between states at regional and global levels. Europe is the first continent forced to rethink the meaning of cooperation between EU Members States and other partners on its borders and beyond in light of the rising power of inward-looking societies. Our conference will imagine new models of cooperation in the face of the rise of inward-looking societies. Inward-looking societies cannot be reduced to misunderstandings about globalization. They are the result of electoral and democratic choices based on new economic, political and cultural assumptions. We will examine the phenomenon of inward-looking societies and will discuss what policy choices and new political and cultural narratives are needed at this moment.
