Global Forum on International Investment
2017 OECD Global Forum on International Investment
Addressing globalisation’s failures: towards a society-centred investment policy agenda
|6 March 2017 8h30-18h00 OECD, Paris
The 2017 Global Forum will contribute to the broader policy debate about how to address globalisation failures from an international investment perspective.
Debates will address options for reforming the international investment policy regime across three dimensions:
- Openness: Has investment liberalisation gone too far? Or have murky forms of protectionism and uneven playing fields been undermining the benefits of globalisation?
- Responsibility: Have international investors been contributing enough to improving living standards in the countries in which they operate? Or have they, as some critics of globalisation contend, been driving a race to the bottom?
- Inclusiveness: Have governments been doing enough to compensate those whose lives have been disrupted by globalisation? Or have the levels of social disruption from globalisation reached such levels that they exceed the ability of governments to play a compensating role? Are they undertaking the structural reforms needed to support a more inclusive globalisation?
