Regulating global finance and the impact on developing countries

Panel debate and Q&A

22 June 2009

The financial crisis has brought the wind of reform to global and national financial regulation. But what is in it from a developing countries’ perspective?
How do the mysterious international bodies, like the Financial Stability Board and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, impact on developing countries?
What need to be changed so that these bodies act in the interest of all people and countries?
What should we think about the recent reforms of global financial governance and what should we advocate for?

The Bretton Woods Project and Research on Money and Finance group invite you to discuss the proposed reforms to the international financial architecture and question whether they deal with the right topics, have the right scope, and serve the interests of all people or just that of developed countries dominating them.
