The fallout from the 2008 global economic crisis continues to redefine international trade and financing arrangements. CIGI monitors issues of financial governance and securities regulation, tracks the response of central banks and examines improvements to frameworks to manage severe sovereign debt crises.

CIGI follows the rise of China on the global economic stage, the intersection of human rights and business and examines issues of relevancy and reform of investor-state arbitration. CIGI research considers how economic fora can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through greater inclusiveness, transparency and interagency collaboration.
