Bedeutung von Interdependenzen
Weaponized Interdependence – The New Politics of Global Economic Coercion: We used to think about globalization as a process in which interdependence would lead to increased economic cooperation among states. Now, interdependence is increasingly associated with vulnerability, coercion, and fear. The US and China are withdrawing from each other, looking both to break ties and to use dependencies to hurt each other. Europe finds itself caught in between the two. Coronavirus has heightened these tensions. To understand this new phase of globalization in which interdependence is being weaponized, we need to understand the networks that constitute globalization, and the implicit power relations they create.
