The global financial crisis and the growing importance of the emerging economies have made it more likely that the dollar may take a smaller role in the international monetary system than at present. What shape will the IMS take? How will responsibility for global economic governance and stability unfold in a multi-currency world with perhaps three or more key currencies?

Chatham House, CIGI and INET will collaborate to host this workshop to discuss the possibility and challenges of the evolution to a multiple reserve currency world and to explore the stability and functioning of the IMS at present and in the future.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
