De-globalization: The end of an era of ever more international trade and cooperation?

We often hear that international trade and other forms of international cooperation are growing exponentially, causing quite a lot of changes in our society. It means among others that supply chains of businesses can be spread out around the globe. This leads to increased competition as well as tougher conditions for people working in several economic sectors, that are feeling the heat of the competition. However, when studying the trade volumes over the last decade (and not just in 2020, due to the Covid-19 crisis), it becomes apparent that international trade has not grown anymore. The financial crisis in 2008 seems to have been a trend-break. Have we started a new era? An era of de-globalization, where we see new counter forces to globalization emerging? And if so, will this lead to an economically better situation for Europe in general and Hungary in particular? Find out more and discuss together on this topic during the international week!

Paradigm shift caused by ICT revolution / Misunderstanding how passwords work

We have been given new challenges by the “Information Age”. In the virtual world of cyber crime, cyber warfare and Big Brother, where the power of formal law is doubtful, where club law dominates, where we has had not enough time to develop well-established formal and informal rules yet, one of our greatest challenge is to form the new rules for the new world or, better to say, for ourselves. In this presentation we have a look at the new problems and the new possibilities.

It has always been an important security issue to prevent unauthorized access to our resources and it becomes more and more important as we go along in the digital era. Both possession based and biometric methods have been evolving fast and many experts say that the knowledge based methods, passwords, are not secure enough. In this workshop we'll prove that passwords in alone can be safe enough – unless so-called experts give false advice to average users.
