The panel was organized by: New Rules for Global Finance, Oxfam, Development Finance International


Panel Description:

The IMF shareholders are engaged in real politik tussles over chairs and shares, allegedly to bridge the democracy deficit on the Executive Board and thereby enhance the IMF’s legitimacy. But the IMF is not alone in its need to improve its governance. So too is the G20 and the Financial Stability Board.

A superb expert panel will describe the successes to date, what international financial governance should look like, and the obstacles to achieving the desired end goal.

New Rules for Global Finance coordinated the civil society input into the IMF’s governance debate through The Fourth Pillar Report (2009).

Domenico Lombardi of Oxania and Brookings will speak about the prospects for IMF reform; Matthew Martin of Development Finance International will speak of the governance challenges of the G20; Ron Blackwell of the US AFL-CIO wish describe the challenges working with the G20 and the Financial Stability Board.
