CIGI-CIC Special Report 2009

The CIGI/CIC Special Report on the future of the International Monetary Fund looks at the IMF’s role in the context of the global economic crisis and the new economic and financial governance architecture that is emerging.  The authors recognize that IMF reform is an ongoing process, and suggest that the Fund can and should be an integral part of reinvigorating the international financial system.  CIGI and the CIC brought together Canadian academics and policy experts to discuss how best to equip the IMF to contribute to the post-crisis world.  The report makes recommendations regarding the IMF’s role in the international financial system, governance of the IMF, and IMF functional reforms.
