This past year has seen the rise of populist nationalism, skepticism of multilateral trade agreements, and calls to tighten, in some ways, the flow of people across borders – perhaps most visibly in the United States and Europe, but with varying manifestations in other parts of the world, as well. For some, these developments represent a much-needed course correction to protect their nation’s security and address macroeconomic trends that have hurt working people. Others see them as harbingers of the demise of the post-World War II global order – or worse.
These developments are sparking lively political debate, but they also raise nonpartisan, practical questions in the realm of international business dispute resolution.
