What is the G-MonD ?

The G-MonD is a research group whose principal aim is to animate and encourage economic debate and research into globalisation and development.
Co-directed by Denis Cogneau and Hillel Rapoport, its president is François Bourguignon.
G-MonD members are internationally-renowned PSE researchers, accompanied by an advisory board consisting of external members. The originality and strength of this think-tank derive from a number of different aspects of its work:

  • The main theme – the global economy – covers a wide range of research fields, including international trade, development policy, and macroeconomics;
  • The aim of the group to initiate a dialogue between firms, administrations and academic researchers via seminars, specific training programs, dedicated workshops, and so on;
  • Bringing out the links between economic analysis and the evaluation of public policies in order to maintain a balance between long-term projects and the ability to react to current events;
  • Worldwide visibility due to the close links between PSE and the major national and international economic organisations;
  • The ability to call on experts in a wide variety of topics and an ambitious programme of visiting researchers from abroad, in particular from the Southern hemisphere.

Its Activities

G-MonD carries out a number of different types of activities:
