In this presentation, titled "The Volatile Market for Globalization," Professor Arjun Appadurai will address the recent debates about the rebirth of the nation-state in the era of pandemic disease, and about whether globalization is about to be rolled back or marginalized. Professor Appadurai argues that globalization remains irreversible but that the markets dominated by globalization are now facing the resurgence of other models of sovereignty, alliance and identity. We are now entering a new period of volatility in which global norms and strategies are in a deep struggle with the nation-state model on the one hand and planetary anxieties on the other.
