The Architecture of Transnational Governance: The Role of Non-State Actors
The Global Financial crisis (GFC) exposed the cracks that had been appearing over some years in the post-war global institutional arrangements established under Bretton Woods and other international agreements. Alongside these developments, the globalisation of markets has seen the role of the State transformed in different ways in industrialised and developing economies – as facilitators in the former, and as bearing ultimate responsibility in the latter – and with it the emergence of sovereign wealth funds as investors, and alternative multilateral agencies such as the Asian Infrastructure Bank sponsored by China.
In this new world, Non-State Actors – from major business interests to international Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) – are forced to adapt. One of the many challenges facing NGOs is to develop strategies that are capable of influencing these developments while remaining true to their founding ideals.
This conference explores that challenge and the architecture of contemporary transnational governance.
