During this session, Josep Piqué will analyse global geo-politics, related challenges and the implications of political macro-trends (tensions and the escalation of conflicts, risks stemming from terrorism and cyber-terrorism, rivalry for resources, changes in the European Union, etc.); economic macro-trends (convergence between advanced and developing economies; an increasingly multi-polar economy less dominated by Western societies; the sustained growth of emerging and social economies, the risk of fragmentation of the global trade system, etc.) and social macro-trends (greater inequality in societies, increasingly more urban and ageing among advanced countries; increased migratory flows, ethnic-national conflicts, etc.).
