Chatham House research on the international monetary system includes tackling issues such as shifting capital flows, monetary policy and international economics, gold, the eurozone and the euro crisis, the rise of the renminbi, and currencies and central banks.
Key areas of focus for our work include how the renminbi is internationalizing, especially in light of the Belt and Road Initiative and the emergence of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. Plus examining developments in the IMF and the World Bank as developing countries challenge established financial norms.
Global growth is also a big area as our analysts consider the recovery from the global financial crisis of 2008, examining US monetary policy in the era of Donald Trump, the UK financial services industry in the context of Brexit, and how the EU is tackling debt crises and planning for its future financing.
A major programmatic focus of this work for Chatham House is carried out by the Global Economy and Finance Department and its projects.
