Global Financial Governance

This stream explores how finance is governed in the global arena, but also investigates alternative approaches to finance that are emerging.

Global Financial Governance Research at Warwick

Global Financial Governance is one of the core thrusts of global governance research at the University of Warwick. Members of the GRP GG are engaged in a wide range of research on the governance and regulation of international finance. Thematic areas of study include:

  • the study of international financial institutions and international organisations responsible for global financial governance, such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and the G20;
  • research and policy work on financial regulation at transnational, regional and bilateral levels, including banking and capital markets regulation and sovereign debt governance;
  • the emergence of alternative approaches to finance and their governance and regulatory implications, including developments such as Islamic finance, Bitcoin and crowdfunding, and local currencies.
