In recent years, many Western countries have witnessed the affirmation of political cultures that oppose the people to the elite and which call for protectionism and the restoration of national sovereignty. At international level, the abandonment of multilateralism is advocated in the name of bilateralism, considering the supranational institutions instituted after the Second World War to be useless or harmful. 
What explains these developments? This question will be at the center of the next edition of the Trento Economics Festival, from 30 May to 2 June 2019.
