As the world grapples with a financial crisis, leaders have called for a fundamental rethinking of global economic institutions. To explore the possibility of a new global economic architecture, AEI announces the launch of a series of four sessions at which the past performance and future prospects of the institutions that oversee global trade, development, and finance will be analyzed – as called for at the meeting of the Group of Twenty in November 2008.
At the first of these four AEI events, leading academics and practitioners from the fields of economics, international relations, and law will examine global economic institutions as a whole. Subsequent events will analyze the specific challenges to individual institutions: the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization.
