As part of Columbia University President's Global Initiative, the Center on Global Economic Governance (CGEG) is conducting policy-oriented research into Strategies for Growth: The Changing Role of the State. This three-year research project is being undertaken in collaboration with the Columbia Global Centers | Europe (Paris), East Asia (Beijing), and Latin America (Rio de Janeiro). The first event of the project is the following roundtable conference in Paris.

Almost a decade after the onset of the US Recession leading to the Global Financial Crisis, the world is once again facing what seems like a global slowdown –even before we had returned to real prosperity.  Some key problems are now even worse than before: increased banking concentration, increased inequality, increased concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, and gridlock in the reform of the global system of governance. How can we ‘reset’ the global economy to avoid long-term stagnation? What can individual countries do; what can Asia as a region do? How do we achieve more global cooperation?

In collaboration with Columbia Global Centers | East Asia (Beijing), the Columbia University Initiative for Policy Dialogue and Tsinghua University.

By invitation only.
