The financial system is a human institution, made by humans for humans. From issues as diverse as tax reform, competition law and human rights to climate change and the integrity of democratic systems – humans and their rights are central. But for investors addressing systemic risks, human systems are often the weakest link. Our work focuses on understanding how systemic change and responses to risks can be managed more effectively to support human flourishing and a more equitable, climate secure world.
We undertake efforts on a range of inter related human rights related issues such as gender or the Border and surveillance industry, as well as on fundamental institutional questions, from economic governance and to the state and future of democracy.
