Shared Global Shared Societies Agenda – a Club de Madrid proposal!

Club de Madrid Proposes a “Shared Societies Agenda” During IMF-WB Spring Meetings

The Club de Madrid, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, and Center of Concern’s Rethinking Bretton Woods Project jointly organised a Conference on “A Global Shared Societies Agenda: A Strategy to promote social cohesion for sustainable development and growth” at the International Money Fund-World Bank Spring Meetings in April, 22nd, 2012 co-chaired by Club de Madrid Members John Bruton and Petre Roman and IMF’s Deputy Director of Strategy, Policy and Review Department, Hugh Bredenkamp. The meeting’s goal was to promote discussion among influential current and former policymakers and key thinkers in the context of the 2012 Spring Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

The Club de Madrid and its partners believe the the linkages between reform of the international financial and monetary system and the prioritization of policies that promote equitable and shared societies must be pursued together in order to achieve sustainable development and growth.

The conveners of the meeting will come up with a first draft of A Shared Societies Agenda that will be circulated among the participants for endorsement, and that will be formally presented to the IMF Management –among other organisations- as a next step following the conference.
