The Dual QCD (DQCD) framework, based on the ideas of ’t Hooft and Witten, and developed by Bill Bardeen, Jean-Marc Gérard and myself in the 1980s is not QCD, a theory of quarks and gluons, but a successful low energy approximation of it when applied to K → ππ decays and K¯0 - K0 mixing. After years of silence, starting with 2014, this framework has been further developed in order to improve the SM prediction for the ratio ε'/ε, the ΔI = 1/2 rule and B^K. Most importantly, this year it has been used for the calculation of all K → ππ hadronic matrix elements of BSM operators which opened the road for the general study of ε'/ε in the context of the SM effective theory (SMEFT). This talk summarizes briefly the past successes of this framework and discusses recent developments which lead to a master formula for ε'/ε valid in any extension of the SM. This formula should facilitate the search for new physics responsible for the ε'/ε anomaly hinted by 2015 results from lattice QCD and DQCD.
