Trade wars, the pandemic, armed conflicts, the energy and the climate crises have exacerbated a tendency towards reversing globalization. Global value chains, digital infrastructures and ecosystems are adapting to trends towards protectionism and localization of services.
In response, governments have become more active than ever in defying their national interests and shaping internal markets, but their actions tend to differ. At the same time, growth of the global digital economy continues steadily as a few digital giants conquer more markets.
This workshop will discuss regulation in digital markets and its effects on competition in times of fragmentation and turbulence. It will bring experts from the world over together, to share their perspectives and find patterns in a complex and localized, global, digital infrastructure.
