Adaption and Change in Global Governance by Pascal Lamy


Pascal Lamy, President Emeritus of the Jacques Delors Institute and former Director-General of the World Trade Organization, was one of the keynote speakers at the fourth annual Barcelona Workshop on Global Governance. He addresses adaption and change in global governance. He says that one very specific issue is whether or not international organizations even have the capacity to change and how this translates into leadership challenges.

Lamy shares his other activities between the Jacques Delors think tanks (Paris, Berlin, Brussels), the presidency of the UNWTO ethics of tourism committee, of the French Committee of the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PEEC), and the Musiciens du Louvre orchestra (Marc Minkowski). He also holds positions in various French, European, and global boards or advisory boards ( Mo Ibrahim Foundation, IFPRI, CERRE, TMEA, Transparency International, Alpbach Forum, Beijing Forum, World Trade Forum, WEF global risks, Europaeum, Collegium international etc.). He is affiliate Professor at the China Europe International Business School CEIBS, Shanghai, and at HEC (Paris).
