Globalisation, a term once conjuring up ideas of progress and a closer-knit world, now evokes fears of an uncertain future. Has Brexit kicked off a domino effect? And can the interconnectedness of cultures, economies and technologies work against us?

We welcome renowned Dutch sociologist Saskia Sassen and British political economist and writer Philippe Legrain to discuss these controversial topics and ask if we should be preparing for a future in danger of a bigger fallout. This event will be chaired by Ari Stein of 52 Insights.
