Retooling Global Development and Governance by Manuel F. Montes, Rob Vos

In Retooling Global Development and Governance a team of UN experts debate new ideas about how to overcome deficiencies in the ongoing process of globalization and in the existing mechanisms for global economic governance. They do not claim to offer a blueprint, rather a set of ideas that could become the basis for a coherent "toolbox" designed to guide development policies and international cooperation.

Promising directions for reform discussed in the book include:

- Strengthening government capacities for formulating and implementing national development strategies

- New strategies for ensuring that official development assistance is aligned with national priorities

- Enhancing international trade and financial systems so that countries with limited capabilities can successfully integrate into the global economy

- Creating new mechanisms for dealing with deficiencies, such as specialized multilateral frameworks through which to govern international migration and labour mobility, international financial regulation, multinational corporations and global value chains regulation and sovereign debt workouts.

Above all, the book highlights the need for a strong mechanism for global economic coordination to establish coherence across all areas of global economic governance.
