Technologies and Effects of Inter-Institutional Interaction

This was an informal workshop in roundtable format, to explore ideas and existing research on how particular structures and dynamics of interactions between institutions can make a difference in global governance, and to help frame future possible research and initiatives. For each topic listed in the program, a few speakers led off reporting research or proposing an idea in five minutes each, in order to generate as much discussion as possible. The roundtable was designed to take advantage of the presence in New York of participants in the NYU-Giessen conference on Innovation in Governance of Development Finance: Causes, Consequences and the Role of Law, and continued (while broadening) that work into inter-institutional issues.
