We are beginning to understand that globalization has strategic consequences. Countries are using their position in globalized networks to “weaponize interdependence”, through their dominance of information and financial networks.
In this talk, Henry Farrell will discuss the research and policy agenda of weaponized interdependence, addressing such questions as:
What areas of the global economy are most vulnerable to unilateral control of information and financial networks?
How sustainable is the use of weaponized interdependence?
What are the possible responses from targeted actors?
How sustainable is the open global economy if weaponized interdependence becomes a default tool for managing international relations?
