Strengthening International Cooperation in a Fragmenting Global Economy

This event will take place during the 2023 Annual Meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund in Marrakech, Morocco. A video of the event will be available on this webpage.

After decades of globalization, the last few years have witnessed a seismic shift in global economic relations. Geopolitical tensions, including those emanating from the war in Ukraine, have led to the rise of fragmentation. At the same time, global challenges, such as climate change, income inequality, debt burdens, and slow growth, are more widespread and deeper than ever. In many ways, multilateralism is more at risk than perhaps any time since the inception of the current international system and the Bretton Woods institutions some 80 years ago. Given this challenging context, any sustainable solution requires global cooperation. What can be done to reinvigorate international cooperation and create a path to a more “pragmatic multilateralism” for the new era?

Join the Center for Global Development, the International Finance Forum (IFF), and the Bretton Woods Committee for this important panel discussion.
