Résumé de la conférence

Prof. Martin will chart the transformation of global economic governance from World War I to the birth of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Drawing on extensive archival research, Martin will show how the first multilateral institutions helped legitimize 19th-century imperial practices of financial coercion in a new era of self-determination and growing democratization. It is this transformation that sets the precedent for the powers of today’s global economic institutions.
