About this grant

As the move toward an integrated global economy continues to accelerate, developing countries are increasingly faced with making decisions around complex trade negotiations, private investments and development finance. In order to understand the potential economic, social and environmental benefits and risks of global economic policy, there is a critical need for informed discussion among academics and the press, as well as public officials and civil society.Multiyear funding will support efforts to provide economic analyses of international financial institution policies and international trade negotiations. Objectives include evaluating crucial economic, social and environmental issues in the areas of global financial flows, international trade and economic development financed by international financial institutions; promoting economic policy reform that supports sustainable development; and encouraging mainstream press to provide balanced reporting on current economic policy.The Center for Economic and Policy Research, established in 1999, works to promote democratic debate on vital economic and social issues.
