The Global Economic Governance Programme

The Global Economic Governance Programme was established in 2003 to foster research and debate into how global markets and institutions can better serve the needs of people in developing countries. The programme is co-hosted by University College and the Blavatnik School of Government.

The three core objectives of the Programme are:

  • to conduct and foster research into international organisations and markets as well as new public-private governance regimes
  • to create and develop a network of scholars and policy-makers working on these issues
  • to influence debate and policy in both the public and the private sector in developed and developing countries.

Researchers primarily focus on finance, trade, intellectual property, aid, investment, and institutions. GEG produces working papers and policy briefs, and holds regular seminars open to the public.

GEG is directed by Dr Emily Jones. The programme has been made possible through the generous support of Old Members of University College and by a DFID-ESRC Growth Research Programme grant.
