Session Abstract

The last four decades have seen both the acceleration of economic globalization along with a worldwide rise in economic inequality. This has produced a backlash. In both the developed and developing world there is a rising tide of identity based populist politics, where often the economic interests of the poorer groups of the population are cast aside in favour of movements and leaders espousing identity based outcomes that are often illiberal and intolerant, as well as serving to further immiserize the already poor. This session explores these dynamics. It will examine trends in the development of inequality in recent years, the patterns of internal conflict and the growth of populism in recent years, as well as a case study of the internationalisation of a humanitarian crisis in Myanmar. The central theme surrounding this roundtable is that our current epoch of economic globalization produces inequality, a variety of internal conflict, the rise of nationalistic populism as well as humanitarian crisis. In addition, these consequences of the governance of globalization have a common thread running through them.
