Virtual Roundtable: How is covid-19 changing European economic sovereignty?

By Elizabeth Rosenberg

What does the corona crisis mean for economic coercion? How does it amplify some of the problems stemming from punitive economic measures Europeans have worried about? Especially in the context of increasing tensions between the U.S. and China, of maximum pressure strategies, and of the depth of the economic crisis we are facing globally. Finally, how might the structural changes in our economies – from the increased role of the state to value chain reviews – change the nature of economic coercion? Who might benefit and what does it mean for European governments and companies? Elizabeth Rosenberg joins Erica Moret and Jonathan Hackenbroich to discuss.
