2. The Fifth WINIR Conference on “Institutions and the Future of Global Capitalism” (14-17 September 2018)

The 21st century will see major disruptions to the global balance of politico-economic power. China will soon become the world’s largest economy; India is another rising giant. These and other developments – including growing inequality in several major economies – contest the Western institutional model of economic development and mount new institutional challenges at the global level. There is a recognised need for new or enhanced international orders, to sustain peace and international trade, as well as to address the problem of climate change. Meanwhile, an extended period of global integration has fuelled local discontent and led to a rise of nationalism and separatism. The international challenges of the 21st century place institutional development and reform at the top of the agenda.

The Fifth WINIR (“World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research”) Conference on “Institutions and the Future of Global Capitalism” jointly organised by WINIR and CUHK Law on 14-17 September 2018 will explore these institutional challenges.
