The financial crisis and ensuing recession brought about a sharp change in the activity and economic role of the state in many countries, blurring previously established demarcations between the roles and responsibilities of the public and private sectors, and challenging established strategies for growth and development.
Research will examine the role of the state in economic models and growth strategies of distinct economic systems.
As the global economy gradually recovers from this great recession, the Center on Global Economic Governance will develop a series of academic conferences to examine in depth the changing role of the state in the economic models and growth strategies of distinct economic systems. We will focus on Europe, Latin America, and Asia, with original research commissioned specifically to be presented at each conference. Growth strategies to be examined will include those related to trade, innovation, foreign direct investment, macroeconomic policies, fiscal stimulus among others.
