Nunn School Symposium IV: The Political Vulnerability of Economic Interdependence

March 11


12:00 pm

4:00 pm

The past five or so years have seen a dramatic increase in the use of economic tools by governments to pursue foreign policy objectives. This increased use has also contributed to heightened concerns about vulnerabilities associated with economic interdependence.  This half-day seminar will consider how different jurisdictions use economic tools for geopolitical ends and seek to reduce their own economic vulnerability.
