The Dante Alighieri Society of BC,  in collaboration with the Institute of Italian Culture Toronto,

invites you to the web talk by Prof. Vittorio Emanuele Parsi

Event's details:

What does the Russian invasion of Ukraine tell us about the collapse of the liberal world order?

Prof.Vittorio Emanuele Parsi, Director of the High School in International Studies at the Cattolica University in Milan, will propose his interpretation of the current events in the light of his most recent book,

The Wrecking of the Liberal World Order.

Emerged as a project aiming to harmonize state sovereignty and the market, through the promotion of liberal democracy domestically, and free trade and economic cooperation internationally, the LWO (Liberal World Order) was hijacked in the 1980s: market forces overshadowed democratic forces, thus disfiguring the LWO into a Neoliberal Global Order. The book advocates for a revival of its original intellectual premises, that in the aftermath of World War II marked the zenith of political modernity.

Vittorio Emanuele Parsi is professor of International Relations at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart. From 2013 he is the director of ASERI (Postgraduate School of Economics and International Relations). From 2005 he is program director of the Master's course in Economics and International Policies (result of a joint venture between ASERI and USI). He is professor of International Relations, Faculty of Economics, University of Lugano (USI – Lugano, Switzerland).
