DELPOWIO workshops

 

Workshop 2017: Bretton Woods @ 75: Legacies and Innovations in Global Economic Governance (December 8-10, 2017 – Munich/Raitenhaslach)

The 75th anniversary of the Bretton Woods conference offers an important occasion to assess the legacies of the agreements at the conference and the politics surrounding innovations in the modern global economic system since 1944. This workshop discusses the contributions to a Special Issue for the Review of International Political Economy that examines the politics of continuity and change in global economic governance. The focus is on the institutions that were established at Bretton Woods and those that emerged with time to manage a growing global economy and help governments cope with new international and domestic realities

.

Empowerment of International Organizations (December 8-9, 2016 – Munich) 

Under what conditions are international organizations (IOs) powerful actors in global governance? What shapes IOs’ effectiveness and normative influence over time? This workshop will explore the different material, institutional, and normative resources of formal and informal IOs. We will discuss how these components of IO power have transformed over time and across IOs. We will also examine IOs’ different modes of governance and explore potential downsides of authority delegation to IOs.
