Event co-hosted by the LSE Institute of Global Affairs, LSE Latin America and Caribbean Centre, Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR).

The emerging world is facing the massive dual challenge of transforming itself into advanced economies in a sustainable way and adjusting to technological change and the increasingly binding environmental and social constraints. Academic work has been underway in a joint policy research initiative titled "Avoiding the Middle Income Trap".

This public event will present new research results in the areas of regional patterns of reform; risks of reform reversals, and global investment and their local enablers at the regional and city level and financing channels.

Dr Andrew Powell (@AndyPowell_IDB) is Principal Advisor in the Research Department, IDB.

Professor Gareth Jones is Director of the Latin America and Caribbean Centre, LSE.

Dr Ralph de Haas is Director of Research, EBRD.

Professor Erik Berglof (@ErikBerglof) is Director of the Institute of Global Affairs, LSE (chair).
