Niehaus Center hosts conference on the Backlash against Globalization

June 2, 2022

On May 13 and 14, the Niehaus Center hosted an academic conference on the Princeton campus, titled “The Anti-Globalization Backlash: What’s Next?”

Scholars of comparative and international political economy gathered to discuss how to understand the effects of trade shocks, automation and identity on mass attitudes toward globalization; the success of populist candidates and political parties in many countries; and  how the dynamics of the backlash vary across countries and global regions. Participants included Niehaus post-doctoral fellows; Princeton faculty and PhD students; and scholars from fifteen universities in the North America and Europe.
