Robust Global Governance for a Resilient World


On 14 – 15 October 2021 the Centre for International Institutions Research will host the VI Annual International Conference “Robust Global Governance for a Resilient World”. The conference is co-organized by the G20 Research Group and the BRICS Research Group, University of Toronto, Canada.

The 2021 brought a hope of economic revival, but it hinges on the capability to ensure success of vaccination, advance green recovery and address numerous risks exacerbated by the impact of the pandemic and increasing digital divides. Robust global governance is essential to deal with the setback in the SDGs progress, climate change, unsustainability of private and public debt, structural inequality, inadequate digital and data governance, unresolved issues in the multilateral trade and finance systems and other risks.

The conference participants will reflect on the major risks and international cooperation challenges, with the plenary focusing on the pending G20 summit agenda and priorities for strengthening international cooperation to manage critical global problems and build global public goods, with the other sessions devoted to the SDGs implementation, international financial and monetary system, climate change and digital economy governance.
