Shifts in Global Economic Governance: The US and Europe Eclipsed

Chatham House, London


Vasuki Shastry, Global Head of Public Affairs and Sustainability, Standard Chartered 


The world’s economic landscape has been profoundly transformed in recent history as developing countries have carved out both a greater share of the world’s GDP and pivotal positions in global trade and finance. Despite the growing importance of these emerging markets, reforms to the dominant system of global economic governance have not matched their pace of growth, and it is unclear whether the existing multilateral institutions are coherent or effective enough to meet the scale of a future crisis. Vasuki Shastry will draw on his extensive experience to provide insights into the significant difficulties these rising actors pose for global economic coordination. 

This event is part of the US and the Americas Programme series on US and European Perspectives on Common Economic Challenges. Conducted with the support of Bank of New York Mellon, this series examines some of the principal global challenges that we face today and potentially differing perspectives from across Europe and the US.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
