Emerging Powers and their role in Global Economic Governance: Impetus for Reform

Vice Yu, Coordinator, Global Governance for Development Progamme, South Centre participated in the roundtable on "The potential for South-South cooperation on influencing the emerging global economic governance architecture" organized by the South African Institute of International Affairs on 30 October 2007 in Johannesburg as a part of the conference on Global Economic Governance.

While there is widespread recognition of the need for reform, the experience of the last few years indicates that this will be a difficult process that holds many political minefields for countries. How can emerging powers and other developing states cooperate on moving the reform agenda forward? How can informal coalitions or groupings assist in this regard? What contribution can emerging powers make as responsible new actors in global governance institutions? These thoughts formed the basis of this roundtable session. More information at:
