In OECD-countries, the support for globalisation is declining. Many citizens are critical of the current form of globalization. Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen and others continue to exploit this discontent. While populist tides in Europe may seem to be kept in check, criticism of globalization continues to spread, and even staunch supporters of a far-reaching international division of labour are now asking for a modified, a smart form of globalization. In Europe, a parallel process has also emerged. Just as hyperglobalization is questioned at the global level, ever closer union is seen critically by some observers in Europe. The solution to these tensions is a tailor-made approach: considering the preferences of societies requires several models for supranational integration.
