A conversation on international governance reform
Part 5 of the Brookings Blueprints for American Renewal & Prosperity event series
As the Biden administration enters its first term, there is a sense of renewed opportunity for America’s reengagement with the world. This new chapter of policymaking offers renewed opportunity for fact-based policy solutions to counter the unprecedented impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the disparities it has laid bare, and to ensure prosperity for all. Against this backdrop, Brookings’s Blueprints for American Renewal & Prosperity provides a series of innovative, implementable policy ideas to inform a new presidency and Congress.
On February 17, the Global Economy & Development program at Brookings hosted the fifth event in the Blueprints series focused on international governance reforms. Experts discussed ideas to strengthen governance and cooperation on artificial intelligence and technology, U.S. engagement in global development, and bridging financing gaps in the social sector.
After the program, the panelists took audience questions. This event was webcast live.
Viewers submitted questions for panelists by emailing email@example.com or via Twitter @BrookingsGlobal by using #BrookingsBlueprints.

The upshot is an environment in which the leaders of the world’s most powerful democracies have to engage with an ever more challenging world, even as they’re on shaky ground at home. This can fuel doubts among our allies and overconfidence among our adversaries, and leave us all more vulnerable as a result.
