Deconstructing deglobalisation

Deglobalisation is a term that has the opposite meaning of globalisation. While globalisation has often been defined as increased flows of economic, technological and social interactions and flows across the world, deglobalisation is used in order to explain that such flows are decreasing.

Deglobalisation has become more used in academic and political discussions since 2016 after the “Brexit and Trump” took place. Since then, more people worldwide believe in and have gained the impression that today’s world is worse, more hostile, poorer, less peaceful, more dangerous, etc.

Also, the term deglobalisation has been highlighted in the discourse during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the current and post-covid development shows that many popular perceptions about the world, globalisation and international institutional development are based on lies, myths and overkilled assumptions and impression.

So is deglobalisation really happening? The current academic evidence shows that opposite — not only that deglobalisation is not happening but that globalisation is changing by becoming more complex, non-economic and decentralised.
