The Mr. & Mrs. S.H. Wong Center for the Study of Multinational Corporations (Wong MNC Center) is co-organizing and co-sponsoring the “Coping with Global Backlash” Conference at the University of California Berkeley (UC Berkeley) in October 2018. The two-day event, which runs from October 18 to 19, is hosted by the UC Berkeley Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Study Center (BASC), Center for Long Term Cybersecurity, Clausen Center, and IEAS, which also are event co-organizers and co-sponsors. The conference will examine disruptions to the global economy in the form of trade protectionism, authoritarianism, China, and data competition. Analysts and practitioners from around the globe will convene not only to reflect on these trends, but also to offer insights about the strategies of global powers such as China and the European Union as well as the responses of companies to these dynamics.
