This one-and-a-half day conference will feature paper presentations,
expert panels, and a keynote address by Ambassador Paulo Nogueira
Batista of Brazil—vice-president of the New Development Bank and
former IMF Executive Director.

The conference will focus on contemporary debates in global governance:

  • how has the global economic governance architecture evolved in recent years?
  • How have established international financial institutions responded to challenges of relevance and legitimacy?
  • How have rising powers sought to alter global economic governance arrangements?
  • How has the West sought to impact the international economic architecture?

Dr Bernhard Reinsberg, Dr Alex Kentikelenis and collaborators will release a new dataset on IMF conditionality at the event. The dataset will be publicly accessible on a new website that provides background
information on CRP/GEG, the role of IMF conditionalities in shaping
developing countries, and enables easy visualization of the data.
It will be linked to CRP’s website.

The organisers have built good relations with three key non-governmental organizations engaged in global economic  governance issues: Bretton Woods Project (London), New Rules for Global Finance (Washington, DC), and the European Network on Debt and Development (Brussels). These organisations could offer statements documenting the impact of CRP scholars’ academic research and policy outreach. 

Convenore: Bernhard Reinsberg, Judge Business School and 
CRP Research Fellow, et al. Funded by CRASSH Conference Grant. ARB, 

Dr Kentikelenis and Dr KC Lin are on the Advisory Committee of the event.
