The phenomenal rise of China and India, but equally the growing assertion of other developing countries on the global stage such as Brazil and South Africa, has placed the debate about a reform agenda for global governance bodies squarely on the table.

The future relevance of the current global economic governance architecture will depend on whether these global institutions become more inclusive and efficient, particularly by promoting a diverse and constructive dialogue with emerging powers and other middle-ranking developing states. Against this background, SAIIA, with other partners, organised a conference examining the role of emerging powers in reforming global economic governance institutions. This event preceded the G20 Finance meeting that was chaired by South Africa in November 2007.

Below are some of the presentations from the ‘Emerging Powers and their Role in Global Economic Governance: Impetus for Reform’ conference.
