Connecting the Dots: The Interplay between International Economics and Foreign Policy

26 September 2014 - 08:00 to 09:15

Chatham House, London


Douglas Rediker, Visiting Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics; US Representative to the International Monetary Fund, (2010-12)
Chair: Dr Robin Niblett, Director, Chatham House



During this event, Douglas Rediker will examine the role of economics and finance as a driver of foreign policy and national security, arguing that the nature of international institutions and governments can sometimes be impediments to effective international economic and foreign policy making. He will discuss whether these deeply embedded and institutionalized barriers to cooperation can be bridged to capture the central role of finance, economic and foreign policy issues in an increasingly geoeconomic world.

The event is part of our series on US and European Perspectives on Common Economic Challenges. Conducted with the support of Bank of America Merrill Lynch, this series examines some of the principal global challenges that we face today and the potentially differing perspectives from the US and across Europe. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
