2019-10-10

Source: ISPI    Published: 2019-10-10


Editor's note: ISPI Forum (Milan 3-4 October) is an annual event aimed at providing a platform for high-level debates on key geopolitical and economic issues under the banner "Exploring the Future" . The spotlight of the 2019 edition was on “The Future of Multilateralism”. And this year's edition was also intended as a step towards the Italian presidency of the G20 in 2021. Wang Wen, executive dean of Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China (RDCY), was invited to attend the ISPI Forum.


Multilateral Institutions seem increasingly unable to provide shared, fair and effective solutions to today’s common needs, while newly-created organizations compete with them. What are the root causes of the current crisis of the global liberal order? How could this impact international trade and economic growth, as well as international and regional security? How can multilateralism be defended and re-launched?


These issues and many more were addressed during the ISPI Forum (Milan 3-4 October), an annual event aimed at providing a platform for high-level debates on key geopolitical and economic issues under the banner "Exploring the Future". The spotlight of the 2019 edition was on “The Future of Multilateralism”, at a time when new and old powers challenge the values, rules and institutions of multilateral cooperation both in the economic and security fields. In particular, the ISPI Forum delved into the rationale behind today’s retreat of multilateralism with a view to providing viable options to re-launch it. This year's edition was also intended as a step towards the Italian presidency of the G20 in 2021.
