Description

ODI are delighted to host Professor Ian Goldin who will present ideas from his latest book, Divided Nations: Why Global Governance is Failing and What can be done about it?

Professor Goldin looks at the challenges facing the world as a consequence of rapid globalisation. The deeper interconnections brought about by urbanisation, development of technology and the rise of the Internet have brought great advantages, but, he argues, they also bring new challenges that spill across national boundaries. He asks whether existing structures like the UN and the World Bank can deal with climate change, finance, pandemics, cyber security and migration, or whether we need a radical new approach.
