image of Women Shaping Global Economic Governance

Women Shaping Global Economic Governance brings together contributions from leading policymakers and thought leaders from all across the world on how to shape our economies. Written entirely by women, this book is not about women. It is written by women who want to encourage everyone, including the 50% of the global population that are women, to contribute to shaping economic governance at a time where the world is impacted by a digital, environmental and social revolution. The essays and observations show women analysing the challenges confronting economic governance and formulating concrete proposals for how to navigate this period of turbulence.




The multilateral institutions established following World War II provided a framework that supported the reconstruction and development of countries devastated by the war, and in recent decades has helped many developing countries to pursue policies that reduced the incidence of poverty and per capita incomes. Increases in trade and foreign direct investment flows, official development assistance, regional integration efforts by nations in all parts of the globe, and technological changes that reduced transport costs for goods, services, and people have been drivers of growth.
