Anti-globalisation and populist policies are on the rise again, bringing with them increasing protectionism. Join us for a presentation and interactive panel discussion on the impact of globalisation on poverty and inequality, cooperation in managing globalisation as well as issues of trade and sovereignty.

Speakers:

  • Professor Christopher Findlay is Executive Director of the Institute for International Trade and Executive Dean of the Faculty of the Professions at The University of Adelaide. Professor Findlay is an economist with expertise in international trade policy and theory, services trade and public policy. He has published extensively on trade liberalisation, Free Trade Agreements and regional integration.
  • Dr Arief A. Yusuf is a senior lecturer and researcher at the Department of Economics, Padjadjaran University. Dr Yusuf will show how increased protectionism contributes to the rising inequality in Indonesia. Using the case of food and agricultural products, he finds that the costs of trade protection in the form of increased inequality outweigh the benefits in terms of increased returns to labour and land.
  • Dr Titik Anas is a senior lecturer and researcher at the Department of Economics, Padjadjaran University. Dr Anas will discuss Indonesia’s role in regional and global cooperation. She argues that Indonesia, through ASEAN, should help conclude the RCEP (Regional Cooperation and Economic Partnership) negotiations that also involve Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, South Korea, and India. Otherwise, new preferential trade agreements between each of the RCEP members with the US may be created and lead to costly complications.
  • Dr M. Chatib Basri is Indonesia’s former Minister of Finance and teaches at the Department of Economics, University Indonesia. Dr Basri will highlight the key issues of today’s globalisation, nationalism, and sovereignty and how they might affect Indonesia. He will discuss policies and reforms that are relevant in the midst of low economic growth, both globally and domestically.
