Structured Conversations lll: Geopolitics and the Economics of Innovation


The "Reorienting Multilateralism" project, in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, aims to expand the knowledge of the Brazilian society about the crisis of multilateralism and to discuss possible directions for global regulation in the areas of trade, digital economy and sustainability, as well as their implications for Brazil.
In this context, the Structured Conversations series consists of questions that are sent to professionals of notorious knowledge on the topic in order to broaden the debate. The invited experts are free to answer all or just some of the questions or even to use them as a guide to short reflections on the theme.
