The Global Economic Symposium (GES) 2010, September 28th-29th, Istanbul, Turkey

During 28 - 29 September the annual Global Economic Symposium (GES) will take place in Istanbul, the European Capital of Culture 2010. Host of the GES 2010 is the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey. The GES is organized by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW), one of the world’s leading Think Tanks in Economics and the German National Library of Economics (ZBW), the world largest library for economics.

The Global Economic Symposium (GES) is an action-oriented solution symposium, not a discussion forum. The focus is on proposed solutions to global problems published every year in the Global Economic Solutions. Its 2009 version has been published in Spring 2010. In addition, the GES is a research-based exchange, resting on the Virtual GES (the internet platform of the GES), containing background research, policy and strategy proposals, and discussion forums. The Virtual GES, which is supported by the German National Library of Economics, has the objective to become an international repository of proposed solutions to global problems, together with underlying analysis. Furthermore the GES is a multi-stakeholder initiative, since it initiates a strategic dialogue between leaders from the worlds of academia, business, politics, and civil society. It seeks a long-term perspective, as its aim is to make the world a better place for the next generation.

The GES 2010 addresses the issue of “Achieving Sustainability in the Face of Systemic Risks”. The GES will consider new ways of thinking about these systemic risks and examine ways of achieving sustainable economic policies, sustainable business models, sustainable institutions of transnational governance, and sustainable civic initiatives.
