You talk, we'll listen

2016 will be remembered for a rising tide of populism, nationalism and historically low levels of trust.

The 2017 Forum (6-7 June) will place a central emphasis on the need for policies winning back the confidence of those who feel left behind, fearful of the impact of globalisation, increasing migration flows, and the unprecedented speed of technological development.

Connecting the dots

A new agenda for inclusive growth

Policymakers and politicians know how to globalise, but we do not know how to make globalisation work for the majority of voters.

And today we see the consequences of this in referenda and elections around the world. Inequality in advanced countries is fuelling huge political instability.
