Event: How Global Financial Institutions Impact Inequality – A Workshop to Strengthen Understanding, Assessment & Reporting

With a two-day workshop in New York on June 2-4 we launched a new initiative to deepen analysis and strengthen the overall methodology and framework for assessing international Financial Rule-Making Institutions (G20, IMF, World Bank, OECD/UN tax bodies, Financial Stability Board and Standard-Setting Bodies).

In April 2017, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and New Rules for Global Finance intend to produce a report assessing the impact of these institutions on inequality. This report will build on the 2014 Global Financial Governance & Impact Report produced by New Rules, in cooperation with a range of research and advocacy groups (available here). It will also build on the global agreement reached in 2015 that progress in reducing inequality should be a key goal within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
