Abstract

The Second Global Think Tank Innovation Summit was held on June 23 and 24, 2017, in Qingdao, China. It comes at an interesting time in global politics and economics. The states under political regime changes have proven robust enough to navigate upsets that defined the year 2016, from Brexit to the impeachment of Brazil’s and South Korea’s presidents. However, the world still faces looming dangers, such as worsening geopolitical competition, weakening economic liberalism and the growing disparities between the winners and losers of globalization.
