Den liberala världsordningen, med fokus på demokrati, mänskliga rättigheter, frihandel och internationell rätt, utmanas från många håll.

Det vittnar bland annat Rysslands brutala och olagliga invasion av Ukraina om. Samtidigt tilltar Kinas inflytande i den globala ekonomin och konkurrensen med USA och EU hårdnar på flera fronter. Nya allianser växer fram och de geopolitiska spänningarna ökar samtidigt som ett förödande krig pågår i Europa. På årets Tylösandskonferens belyser vi frågor av avgörande betydelse för Sveriges, Europas och världens framtid. Vilka är drivkrafterna bakom de maktskiften vi ser? Hur påverkas internationella relationer, den globala ekonomin och näringsliv?

Detta kommer vi att diskutera från en rad olika perspektiv tillsammans med ledande forskare, företagsledare och experter.
