The Governance of Trade, Finance and Macroeconomic Cooperation: A Historical Perspective Since the 1970s

Dates:

  Add to Calendar 2018-11-14 9:00 2018-11-14 13:00 Europe/Paris The Governance of Trade, Finance and Macroeconomic Cooperation: A Historical Perspective Since the 1970s

The 1970s mark a sea change in economic governance. The growth of international capital flows, the internationalisation of banking activities, financial innovations, the development of offshore financial centres, the rise of international monetary instability, new geopolitical tensions and transnational dynamics: all these challenged the balance of the postwar international system. The 1990s represent just as important a landmark, as the end of the Cold War ushered in a new optimism for the build-up of a truly global governance system, including more countries and new fields of cooperation.
This optimism looks misplaced in hindsight. But today’s challenges to multilateralism may echo those of the past. What can the history of the architecture of economic governance tell us about its challenges today?
