In the wake of the global financial crisis and the onset of the eurozone sovereign debt crisis, existing mechanisms of global economic governance have faced strong theoretical, political, and normative challenges from a wide range of actors operating across multiple spheres in the global political economy.

The 2012 BISA International Political Economy Group conference brings together scholars working on global economic governance across a broad range of topics and issue-areas, including:

  • Continuity and change in global economic governance
  • Global economic governance in theory and practice
  • Normative critique of global economic governance institutions
  • Democratic accountability in global economic governance
  • The emergence of new actors in global economic governance
  • The evolving relationship between global and regional economic governance
  • Global economic governance, social activism, and the politics of resistance
