Introduction

The first masterclass for Fundación Ramón Areces of 2017 will be focusing on understanding the current global transformation of politics and economics. The first day will look at the first 100 days of Trump's Presidency, the changes that are being made and the consequences of his view of politics and foreign policy. This first day will debate whether globalization is under threat, and if we are returning to the past or a new vision of the future. The second day will focus on the current power dynamics in global political economy, comparing the different superpowers that co-exist in the world and analysing the effect of their rise, including focus on Russia, the West and China. The final day will consider the crucial European areas of politics and political economy, including exploring what will happen after Brexit, future prospects for the UK and EU, and how this will affect EU trade relations from both an intra-EU perspective and those with the EU´s major trading partners.
