Book publication: "Regionalizing Eurasia"
By Chris B. Wensink and Midas A. van Dijk
Panteia is proud to announce the publication of the book Regionalizing Eurasia, by our colleague Chris Wensink and co-author Midas van Dijk. The book provides an excellent analysis of current global economic and political developments, and is highly insightful in public policy.
During the pandemic, travel was restricted and free trade was put under scrutiny. As the threat of the virus recedes, we are faced with wars, economic sanctions and the pursuit of self-sufficiency. Somehow the serpents keep slithering through the global paradise, should we be afraid?
This book demonstrates that the causes of a deglobalization have been growing over the last decades. Heralding neither the end of globalism nor a return to nationalism, this is a regionalization in which the EU, ASEAN, EAEU and other blocks will become the new focal points of economics and world politics. Rather than a knee-jerk reaction to external shocks, there are multiple good reasons for regionalizing. In fact, a regionalizing world will offer exciting opportunities – but only to those who grasp them. This book will help you do that.
