Emerging Economies Research Dialogue

The process of globalization has created a new world order, both economic and political, involving substantial changes in the relative weight of different countries and regions. In this new world order, the so-called emerging economies are increasingly poised to assume an enhanced role. So far this global metamorphosis has not been matched by deeper reflection in the emerging countries themselves. There are few forums where emerging economy researchers and policymakers can share knowledge, learn from each other and formulate policy on the basis of common or differentiated interests.

This grant will allow the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations to bridge the gap by organizing two research dialogues in the form of international conferences for emerging economy professionals, academics and policymakers on issues of contemporary relevance to the global economy and polity. The dialogues will be structured around sound academic research directly relevant to policymaking. Eminent scholars from emerging economies will be invited to synthesize ideas on specific themes for presentation during the conferences. It is expected that the dialogues, discussions and published results will provide impetus for continuing research and policy-related networking among emerging economy researchers.
