The Uncertain Future of Global Economic Integration

Ráðstefnan The uncertain future of global economic integration fór fram dagana 14. og 15. september sl. í Norðurljósasal Hörpu. Ráðstefnan var skipulögð af The Reinventing Bretton Woods Committee og Seðlabanka Íslands. Markmið ráðstefnunnar var að meta hnattvæðingu efnahags- og fjármála og greina hvernig viðbrögð einstakra ríkja og hugsanlegar endurbætur á alþjóðlegu peninga- og fjármálakerfi geta haft áhrif á framtíð alþjóðavæðingar.

Aðalfyrirlesari á ráðstefnunni var Jaime Caruana, aðalframkvæmdastjóri Alþjóðagreiðslubankans í Basel. 

Ráðstefnan fór fram á ensku og dagskrá hennar má finna hér fyrir neðan.
