Reclaiming the Commons: Collaborating and Competing in the New Economic Order

4 & 5 October 2010

Concept Paper

As it unfurled, the global financial crisis was most striking in revealing the weaknesses and vulnerabilities of the very institutions entrusted to guard against it, and demonstrated yet again the frailties in a globalized world where the decisions of private actors can have resounding effects on the wider “commons”. The European sovereign debt crisis as seen at its extremes in Greece, the Goldman Sachs trial and a change of government in the United Kingdom are some of the key shapers of 2010 where turbulence in developed economies are keenly felt across the globe in Asia, Middle East and Africa.
