CIGI and Chatham House book launch and roundtable discussion.

This event will begin with insights from the authors of a new book, Emerging Powers in Global Governance: Lessons from the Heiligendamm Process (CIGI-WLUP, 2008) , which recognizes the centrality of emerging powers and pushes for their inclusion in discussions on the new global architecture.

Meanwhile, the spread of toxic 'Frankenstein' products through global markets has precipitated a major crisis and uncovered significant and large-scale regulatory and risk management failures. This has prompted many to claim that "laissez-faire is over".

This recognition presents regulators and international institutions with an unprecedented opportunity for reform, to review the systemic shortcomings of the current architecture and devise a new model of governance suitable for today's global economic realities. The results of this brainstorming roundtable should feed into the G8 agenda in 2009.

This event is strictly by invitation only.
