A public forum
London School of Economics and Political Science
Friday 13 October, 5.00pm
Three years have passed since globalisation encounted its first financial crisis. Panic followed the Bhat depreciation in June 1997 as it spread via South East Asia and the Far East to Russia and Latin America. Was the crisis business as usual or was it a harbinger of a new era of global financial instability? Could it have been prevented? Should it have been dealt with differently? Is it possible and/or necessary to put mechanisms in place to tackle similar crises in the future?
A panel of distinguished academics, practitioners and activists will be addressing these issues in a public forum Financial Crises and Global Governance hosted by The Centre for the Study of Global Governance and the Financial Markets Group at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
The panel includes
Perry Anderson, LSE
Stefan Colligon, German Ministry of Finance
Karin Lissakers, US Executive Director, IMF
Ann Pettior, Founder and Director, Jubilee 2000
The panel will be chaired by Lord Desai, LSE, and Lord Eatwell, Cambridge University.
The forum will take place at 5pm in the Old Theatre at the London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, WC2A 2AE, on Friday 13 October.
Journalists are invited to attend this event.
