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.



Trade policy for prosperity: The value of open markets

In the last two decades, the narrative on Africa has moved from that of a “lost continent” to one of “Africa rising”. This positive perspective on Africa and its potential is very welcome since this is after all the continent with some of the fastest growing economies in the world, taking four of the top five places in 2017. It is true that since the early 2000s, Africa’s growth has been influenced by commodity prices. But improved macroeconomic management, investment, and diversification of trade and investment ties both within the continent and towards emerging economies have also made an impact.
