The Global Economic Governance (GEG) Africa programme is a policy research and stakeholder engagement programme to strengthen the influence of pro-poor African coalitions at global economic governance fora.

EVENTS

The Global Economic Governance (GEG) Africa programme engages with key stakeholders, to ensure that African views are included in our research and that our findings are widely disseminated and discussed. Our events include scoping workshops with African policy makers, business representatives and multilateral institutions, study groups to consult on policy recommendations and positions and representation, and media activities around GEG fora such as BRICS and G20 summits.
