Department "World Economy and Development Financing"

The department “World Economy and Development Financing” is engaged in research on the integration of developing countries into the world economy as well as on development financing at the national and international level.

Key issues, on which the department’s research and policy advice activities centre, include:

(1) the formation and development of international institutions and bodies of rules for global economic governance that accord due consideration to the structural disadvantages with which developing countries are faced in the process of globalization (fair globalisation) and

(2) development of financial systems at the national and international level that contribute to poverty reduction and sustainable development.
