Reforming Global Financial Governance
The goal of this work is to make global financial governance systems more transparent, accountable and effective.
One of the primary lessons of the global financial crisis is that financial markets need the oversight of democratic institutions to ensure transparency and accountability. The rules governing international trade and financial markets are set by a small group of nations and institutions, offering little opportunity for participation from the communities most affected by its decisions. The result is a global financial system that is unresponsive to the inequities of economic globalization.
What We're Doing
To help democratize global financial governance systems, we support efforts to reform key global institutions to make them more transparent, accountable and effective in delivering financial security. This includes developing alternative governance structures; bringing new voices to global public dialogue; and building broad alliances—with academic partners, advocacy groups, global organizations and national governments—to ensure that these institutions advance the public good.
