Project Workshop: Low income countries navigating global banking standards

Tuesday March 8th 2016
Blavatnik School of Government

In the wake of the global financial crisis, industrialised countries have agreed a series of regulatory reforms to repair and regulate their own financial systems. All countries, including low-income countries (LICs), are encouraged to adopt these new global standards. Our three-year research project, funded by an ESRC-DFID grant, is among the very first to look at how political institutions and processes - at both the domestic and global levels - shape the impact of global banking initiatives on LICs and their ability to harness financial flows for inclusive growth. 

This workshop is being held at the end of the first year of the project, and will bring together the project’s research team and key external advisers to sharpen our analytical frameworks and deepen our empirical knowledge. The team includes researchers from academic institutions in Burkina Faso, Togo, Kenya, and Vietnam, coordinated through GEG. In-depth case studies on countries in South East Asia, West Africa and East Africa will form part of the project’s research output.

Attendance by invitation only.
