Future of Government Disruptive Debates

Follow the event on Twitter #FutureofGovernment

Change is inevitable. The actions which governments do or do not take in the immediate, near and medium term will impact on the future of people and the planet. Prior to the pandemic, many governments already faced multiple challenges in managing their economies and delivering services.

The Future of Government Disruptive Debates will provide influential global leaders and thinkers a platform from which to share their contrasting views and ideas on how governments might seize the opportunity from crisis to take pathways towards achieving greener, more resilient and more inclusive development outcomes in the future. Personalities invited will include influential young voices, leaders from civil society and the private sector, former heads of government, high profile politicians, officials in public and international organizations and representatives of academia.

There will be six Future of Government Disruptive Debates and each will attempt to answer a different question:

  • May 12 | What will be the demands on and future objectives of government? 

- Opening Remarks by Edward Olowo-Okere, Global Director, Governance Global Practice, World Bank Group
- Ranjitsinh Disale, The 2020 Global Teacher Prize Winner
- Francis Fukuyama, Professor at Stanford University
- Molly Morgan Jones, Director of Policy, The British Academy
- Moderated by Melinda Crane, Chief Political Correspondent, Deutsche Welle 

  • June 02 | How will the role of government change? 
  • July 07 | How will governments deliver? 
  • July 28 | How will governments be more productive? 
  • September 1 | How will citizens’ trust in government be affected?
