Minyoung & Curba Local Track Chairs, AIB 2020 Online De-globalization, slowbalization, and regionalization AIB 2020 Online Local Track Showcase Panel Date: 07/07/2020 Time: 11pm (UTC) / 7pm (EST) ID: 2919 Title: De-globalization, slowbalization, and regionalization The nature of international business (IB) is undergoing a tectonic shift. With increasing anti-globalization sentiment around the world, the prevailing perspective of the past three decades-globalization-is in jeopardy resulting in the retreat of multinational corporations. Indeed, various forms of international interactions are shrinking relative to world GDP, including FDI and trade. This new era of global sluggishness, or "slowbalization," is influencing every aspect of IB with growing geographical fragmentation and deeper links within regional blocs. Our local track, and accompanying showcase panel, speaks to one of the most essential and timely conversations of the day regarding the changing dynamics of IB. We look forward to an engaging conversation advancing our understanding of the opportunities and challenges in the era of de-globalization, slowbalization, and regionalization.
