Its main focus is on the decision-making process as it affects the outcome of the international organizations’ activity.As a consequence of the 2008 global financial crisis, wisemen and committees of experts were asked to analyze the flaws and weaknesses of global financial institutions. Their reports, along with papers by think tanks, scholars and civil society representatives, proposed actions and reforms. Systematizing and commenting those hints, a fact crops out: in spite of their seeming diversity, all recommended reforms are marked by significant affinities, evidencing an underlying sharing of the criticalities to be addressed and corrected. The book examines suggestions for global economic governance reform in a plain and accessible language as a contribution to a necessary debate, which cant be confined to elite meetings and expert talks but has to involve all global citizens.
