The global governance deficit
Broadcast of the public lecture by Pascal Lamy, former World Trade Organisation Director General and Chair of the Oxford Martin Commission for Future Generations, as hosted by CPD and the UTS Business School on 28 May.
The lecture, which proposed multi-sectoral ‘creative coalitions’ as a solution to deficiencies in global governance, was followed by responses from former WA Premier Geoff Gallop, City of Sydney CEO Monica Barone and Professor Roy Green from UTS Business. The discussion touched on the need for governance structures to address long term and intergenerational issues in their thinking. Including corporate, community and local government forums in policymaking was seen as a way to subvert the short-term thinking inherent in traditional government processes.
