On November 14th, the Centre for International Environmental Studies of the Graduate Institute of Geneva will host PhD candidate Jamie Marie Fraser for a presentation of her research on ‘Sovereign Debt Stability and the Effectiveness of Transnational Governance Regimes’, which represents one of the outputs the project ‘Effectiveness of Partnerships for Advancing the SDGs: Behavioural Pathways and Impacts‘. The presentation, which is part of the CIES Lunch Seminar Series of the Centre for International Environmental Studies, will start at 12.15pm.

Jamie’s research seeks to understand the link between membership in a transnational governance regime and sovereign debt market stability in resource-rich countries. More specifically, the analysis tests if voluntary membership in a regime governing transparency and accountability in resource management behaves as a signalling mechanism that governments in resource-rich countries can credibly manage resource revenue and adhere to sustainable fiscal policies in the long run.

The seminar will take place in room P1-847 of Maison de la Paix (Chemin Eugène-Rigot 2, 1202 Genève).

Please register here as lunch is provided.
