Transformation of global economic governance

With the acceleration of globalisation and the increase of cross-border trade, investment and financial flows the national policy space in many policy areas is increasingly determined by international standards and agreements. With the onset of the international financial crisis at the latest it became obvious that a continuous adjustment of regimes in various areas of international economic and political cooperation is warranted. The debate on a “new international economic order” of some decades ago was still oriented on clear lines of conflict between industrialised and developing countries. This classic distinction between North and South, donors and recipients is becoming obsolete. Development goals and other important issues of international economic cooperation are increasingly intertwined. Developing and emerging countries have an increasing weight in the world economy and demand their fair share in global economic governance.

The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) works on new forms of international cooperation on the global and regional level, which are necessary for the provision of global public goods. Emphasis is laid on the scope for developing countries to influence the decisions on international regimes and global public goods.
