IÉSEG is pleased to invite you to its conference on the theme: War in Europe – Harbinger of a New World Economic Order?

A geopolitical analysis by Ralf SCHUSTER.

About the lecture:

  • What could the new economic normal look like when peace will hopefully soon return to Europe? The focus of the lecture is on the expected effects on European and German companies from changing global supply chains and the necessary development of new sources of energy and raw materials. While Europe probably has a long way to go to return from confrontation to cooperation, other countries and markets are already positioning themselves as alternative suppliers and production locations. As “safe havens” with good location factors, the USA and China are likely to benefit disproportionately from anticipated production relocations. This is supported by the American “Buy American” and the Chinese “Dual Circulation” policy. The presentation aims to provide you with scenarios for strategic management considerations. Consequently, it involves practical experience from current geopolitical consulting mandates.
