The Trust takes a broad approach to this crucial research including facets such as economic, financial, social, security, aboriginality, marginality, culture, creativity and technology and environmental sustainability. Working to collaborate with institutions at home and around the world, this Canada-based trust aims to engage a diversity of voices towards equality, prosperity, stability and peace.
Emerging economies are engaged in establishing alternative arrangements for international economic governance – e.g. development banks and currency reserve pools – that undermine the centrality of western-dominated international financial institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The Trust will explore the positive implications of multipolarity, seeking a sustainable exit from the crisis through democratic, egalitarian strategies for human development at the national and international levels. Critically appropriating past experience of state-led economic growth, it will modernize the idea of the developmental state for the 21st century.
