Abstract

The return of war on the European continent, already weakened by a two-year long pandemic, has caused a worsening of the energy crisis originally ignited by the resumption of economic activities after the pandemic-induced slowdown. The export crunch in the trade of raw materials and manufacturing components as well as a sudden resumption of consumption after a period of stagnation, supported by unprecedented creation of public debt on the part of the major world economies, has caused inflation to flare up throughout the world. These major challenges to the existing world order – a world order founded upon the hegemony of neoliberal economy, dis-embedded global markets and presumptive superiority of NATO powers – have exposed its brittleness and holographic nature. The situation requires a serious reconsideration of the assumptions upon which it was founded and demands a bold reassessment of current (dis)equilibria. With these two roundtables we aim to prompt such a reassessment and promote a discussion of the likely scenarios.
