The Global Economic Workshop


"Tackling Child Poverty" was identified as the most urgent global challenge in the Global Economic Workshop 2010. It will play a major role in setting up the agenda for the GES 2011 since it received the highest average score. The results were obtained using a scale from 1 to 10 in which 10 represents the highest assignable value of importance.

Furthermore, "Management of Public Debts", "Legitimacy of Global Governance Institutions", and "Managing sustained Growth and Employment" share the second place regarding importance of urgent global challenges. They will also be primarily addressed within the framework of the GES 2011 besides all other challenges that have been identified.

The Global Economic Workshop 2010 was meant to provide a backdrop for the problem-solving efforts of the GES 2010 and a foundation for the deliberations leading to the agenda of the GES 2011. The participants held a vote on the most urgent global challenges and the results are presented here. In the Global Economic Workshop the entire GES Community seeks to identify the major global challenges in the coming few years.



The Workshop brings together everyone taking part in the Symposium – panelists, speakers and participants – in order to articulate a climate of opinion on what are the most serious global problems that we face nowadays. This community effort is meant to mirror the "GES spirit" of global collaboration across the boundaries of nations, cultures, professions, and ideologies.
