Bringing Balance to IMF Reform Debates

CIGI will be hosting an international workshop on ‘Bringing Balance to IMF Reform Debates.’

This conference is designed to bring together the policymakers and academics interested in the future of the International Monetary Fund and global monetary relations more generally. Over the past year, CIGI, New Rules for Global Finance, and Oxford University’s Global Economic Governance Programme, have been sponsoring a series of regional conferences that have enabled developing countries to articulate their needs and priorities for future services from the IMF.   To date, the debate about International Monetary Fund (IMF) Reform has been shaped largely by conversations within and among OECD countries and orthodox or mainstream economists.   This project proposes to remedy this imbalance within the current debate.
