Bretton Woods @80

In the course of 2024 we plan to host several high-level conferences and seminars designed to develop a new normative and practical agenda for Bretton Woods. Our discussions will aim to improve the clarity of thinking and broaden the area of common ground on steps needed to adapt the international financial architecture to current challenges in a way that will help build a Bretton Woods for the future

The process will culminate with a major conference to be held during the IMF /World Bank October annual meetings in Washington DC. This event will build on the year’s prior discussions and analyses to generate recommendations that will include clear suggestions for reviving global cooperation in an age of market fragmentation and policy divergence.

The tile for Dialogue of Continents this year, De-risking the Transition to a New Globalisation,  was chosen to reflect the fact  that although we have been operating for a long time under the assumption that economic and financial globalisation would continue apace, with the international order under great strain in recent years, this may not be the case and we need to be prepared to make an agile transition.
