The Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, the coronavirus pandemic and the blockade of the Suez Canal by the Ever Given have all clearly demonstrated the vulnerability of global supply chains. Many goods and raw materials are in limited supply or no longer available, which slows down economic development worldwide. Food and energy prices are skyrocketing, threatening food security in many regions of the world. Today’s multiple crises challenge us to strengthen global supply chains and transform them in a sustainable way.
We would like to discuss these challenges and possible solutions with experts from all over the world at the Dresden Forum for International Politics. The one-day conference will be accompanied by an evening reception hosted by Minister President Michael Kretschmer.
The Dresden Forum for International Politics has been organised by the Development and Peace Foundation (sef:) together with the Saxon State Chancellery, the Frauenkirche Foundation and the Centre for International Studies at the TU Dresden.
This event is co-financed by tax money based on the budget agreed upon by the members of the Saxon State Parliament.
