Since 1994, we have convened high-level stakeholders committed to redefining the global financial architecture and monetary system to respond to the changing economic landscape.

Bretton Woods @80

In celebration of the 80th anniversary of Bretton Woods, RBWC will host a series of high-level conferences and seminars across the globe.

This programming will be designed to develop a normative and practical agenda for a Bretton Woods in a new world.

To this end, we will seek to clarify how the international financial architecture can adapt to current challenges, paying particular attention to, among other issues, the need to revive global cooperation in an age of market fragmentation and policy divergence. 

As part of this initiative, we are planning a major conference during the IMF /World Bank October 2024 annual meetings in Washington DC.
