This event will mark the launch of the May 2010 special issue of International Affairs on 'Global Economic Governance in Transition'.

The meeting will start with an expert panel discussion focusing on the main findings of the special issue. An open discussion among an audience of key policy-makers, business leaders, journalists and academics, held under the Chatham House Rule, will follow the presentations from the authors.

The issue examines the extent to which the financial crisis has served as a catalyst for change on global economic governance. It explores the relationship between market dynamics and the rebalancing of political and social authority, question the issues of legitimacy and efficiency of who should be included in discussions of global governance, as well as look into the link between the urgency of harmonization at the global level and the reversion to a more pluralist model tied to domestic politics.

The special issue is a collaborative partnership with the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), the Rockefeller Foundation and the Economic and Social Research Council, UK.

Attendance is strictly by invitation only.
