We are beginning to understand that globalization has strategic
consequences. Countries are using their position in globalized
networks to "weaponize interdependence," through their dominance of
information and financial networks. In this talk, Henry Farrell will
discuss the research and policy agenda of weaponized interdependence,
addressing such questions as: What areas of the global economy are
most vulnerable to unilateral control of information and financial
networks? How sustainable is the use of weaponized interdependence?
What are the possible responses from targeted actors? And how
sustainable is the open global economy if weaponized interdependence
becomes a default tool for managing international relations?
