Program

On Friday, the stress will be on the global world: what are the main characteristics of globalization? How can the world’s economic future be predicted? Is the scale of the countries still relevant under the constraints due to the world’s instabilities? Is growth an index of economic performances only or an index of well-being in overall?

On Saturday, 5 paths will allow us to determine on what underpinnings a country should be built. The 5 paths are the social contract, economic dynamism opportunities and policies, the territories, and the population. Discussions will be based on various experiences, profitable or not, international or local, in order to design the pillars of an ideal country. In between, there will be three debates focused on France. What perception of France – as natives or strangers – do we have? How can we reform France according to the key elements brought during the paths’ sessions. Does the World expect something from France?

On Sunday, we will gather the information that both Friday and Saturday will provide in order to link national challenges within a global world in a long run analysis. Therefore, the European Union, its concerns, and its future will start the day’s discussions. Additionally, the prospectives of international relations; the role of new technologies in the world (dis)order; the future aspects of power and leadership are the themes that will be tackled on Sunday.
We will conclude Les Rencontres économiques d’Aix-en-Provence by a focus on France in order to anticipate the role France will play in the hardly predictable world.
