What should be the response of lawyers and academics to the present “backlash” – Brexit, Trump, the rise of neo-nationalism and the “alt-right?

Is it still possible to think about globalization in the way it has been for the past 20 years? Should we give another chance to human rights in policy-making?

Is there a point in redistributing power between international institutions or is the very existence of such institutions the problem?

Is the rise of internet platforms such as Facebook, Amazon and Google an opportunity or a threat?
