Organizer

The Center on Global Economic Governance, the Program for Economic Research, Columbia University Press, and the Initiative for Policy Dialogue

The Center on Global Economic Governance was created with the recognition that without adequate global economic governance there is a greater possibility of major crises and a tendency toward protectionism and political upheaval. It is our mission to develop, promote and implement new theories, studies and policy initiatives that cut across nation-state boundaries and address this new reality.

Founded in 2003, the Program for Economic Research (PER) enhances the research environment for economists at Columbia University across a range of activities including research funding proposal development and portfolio management, seed funding for early-stage research, public programs, conferences, and events and visiting researcher programs.
