Podcast: Globalization and the search for common ground

On this episode of Policy Forum ModuleAnthea Roberts and Nicolas Lamp – authors of The six faces of globalization: who wins, who loses and why it matters – join us to discuss the need for empathy in debates about economic globalization.

For decades, the principles of economic globalization have played a key role in shaping public policy, but the status quo assumption that globalization is good for everyone is being seriously questioned. How can we all better understand the different narratives surrounding globalization, from the “establishment narrative” to the rise of right-wing populist critiques? What role should international organizations play in the future? And how can policymakers encourage constructive, good-faith conversations about what’s best for everyone? Professor Anthea Roberts of the Australian National University (ANU) and Associate Professor Nicolas Lamp of Queen’s University in Canada join Professor Sharon Bessell and Dr Arnagretta Hunter to discuss these crucial questions.
