Global Financial Stability

As the processes of globalisation and financial globalisation have progressed in recent decades, the need for a global financial system that can create a more inclusive, efficient, transparent and effective global financial system has intensified.

The IGF and its collaborators have been working on issues that contribute to greater certainty, efficiency and transparency of regional and global financial systems. The IGF has published, in collaboration with its key policy makers and researchers, several research and policy works that contribute to the debate and analysis of the global financial system that could mitigate the impact of  future global financial shocks and crises.  The IGF has published several research papers in the area of regional and global financial integration. It has been active in the media on this important theme and is contributing greatly in raising the awareness of the public regarding the vital importance of a stable global financial system and of factors that lead to more effective and inclusive global and regional financial systems in the 21st century.

Please refer to the “Publications” and “Videos” sections of the IGF for further information regarding this activity.
