The pandemic crisis and ongoing conflict have contributed to the increasing fragmentation of the international economic system that began several years ago. Complicated by more recent events, globalisation seems to be changing its skin, presenting itself more and more as transversal, closely linked to geopolitical, physical or economic dynamics.
At the same time, the economic recovery following the abrupt halt of the pandemic has encountered numerous difficulties, with an energy crisis aggravated by climate change and the war in Ukraine, with severe repercussions for food security and supply chains. The market for goods and services faces a new shortage, shifting the focus from demand to supply. There is a future poised between the opportunities for recovery and the risks of new and old crises.

This changing scenario and its implications will be addressed during ConfronTI 2022comparisons, the full-day event organised by the Institute for Economic Research (IRE), which this year will take place on Thursday, 24 November and will be titled "Less and less global? New Supply Dynamics."
The encounters are aimed at economic and institutional actors at the cantonal level as opportunities to meet and discuss local economic dynamics in an interregional, national and cross-border comparison.

Barbara Antonioli Mantegazzini, USI professor and Vice Director of IRE, will introduce the topic, followed by speeches by Professor Pippo Ranci (Florence School of Regulation, Robert Schuman Centre) and Professor Alessia A. Amighini (Università del Piemonte Orientale, ISPI).
The talk will continue with a panel discussion moderated by IRE researchers featuring Beatrice Fasana (Managing Director Sandro Vanini SA), Oscar Gonzalez (Assistant Director, Division of Professional Education), Giuseppe Perale (Executive Vice President & Founder IBI SA) and Andrea Abbatelli (COO Hydac AG). Finally, the encounter will close with closing remarks by Mario Jametti, USI professor and Director of IRE.
