Economic GovernanceThe impacts of the global financial crisis are still reverberating around the world. It is crucial to critically analyze global financial and economic governance arrangements and identify measures which can avert future crises and protect and serve society and ecology.
Our Economic Governance Program focuses on democratizing governance structures to ensure that the international financial institutions and bodies, such as the G20, are representative and accountable. It also works on democratizing policy-making in the areas of finance, economics and trade to ensure that the financial system serves “real economies” in environmentally-sustainable ways that respect the rights of poor and vulnerable groups and women.
We support the engagement of citizen’s groups in developing countries in both areas, including through the encouragement of public education and capacity-building.
