Death of globalization? — EU expansion — Women in Davos

This bumper edition of Davos Confidential includes a debate on the death of globalization, the prospects of more countries joining the European Union and an insider’s take on the role of women at the World Economic Forum.

POLITICO’s Sarah Wheaton, Jamil Anderlini, Ryan Heath and Suzanne Lynch debate an issue they and others have been grappling with all week: is globalization dead? Historian and professor Adam Tooze also shares his thoughts on the subject.

Roberta Metsola, president of the European Parliament, speaks to Suzanne about the EU’s role on the global stage, Russian sanctions and the prospects of Ukraine joining the bloc. Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița also wants her country of Moldova to join the EU and shares her thoughts on the issue. Meanwhile, Ireland’s Taoiseach Micheál Martin says he’s open to changing the EU treaties to potentially pave the way for other countries to join without facing some of the existing hurdles.

Journalist Anya Schiffrin, a professor at Colombia University in New York and a long-time attendee of the WEF, shares her views on the role of women in Davos and how that’s changed over the years.

And Swiss Federal Chancellor Walter Thurnherr has some eye-opening observations about this year’s WEF.
