Abstract
The resilience of the neoliberal free trade paradigmin the post-covid-19 erashould not be underestimated, at least in the short term. The EU’strade policy response hasso farbeen compliant with free trade philosophy and this has not faced serious challengesyet. Ostensibly protectionist measures are explicitly framed as temporary and exceptional and have been accompanied by liberalizing proposals. In the medium and longterm, paradigm change may happen. However, the authorswarn that suchshifts may not be as romantic as envisaged by deglobalization advocates, because also securitization looms as a realistic and dangerous alternative. While both deglobalization and securitization involve less trade, their political underpinnings are radically different.
