Think tanks see financial regulation as part of new development framework (April 2013)

This article

In an article produced for rightingfinance.org Center of Concern staff Aldo Caliari comments on a report released by three influential think tanks, “Post-2015: Global Action for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future.” The report focuses on how global collective action can help developing countries achieve development and establishes a link between achievement of development goals and reforms of the international financial system. It is, therefore, expected to raise pressure for inclusion of financial regulation issues in the new development framework.
