The International Monetary Fund will hold the Nineteenth Jacques Polak Annual Research Conference at its headquarters in Washington DC on November 1-2, 2018.
In an increasingly interconnected world, policies motivated by national objectives can have far reaching international consequences. These international externalities provide the basis for policy coordination and multilateral institutions. Backlash against globalization, however, has increased pressure on policymakers to step away from commitments to international cooperation and has undermined support for global institutions. This year’s conference on “International Spillovers and Cooperation” will bring together researchers and policymakers to discuss innovative research in this area and facilitate the exchange of views.
