The Group of Lecce (GoL) reunites experts in international law, finance, and economics who share an interest in the development of democratic and effective institutions of global governance. Its mission is to advocate for the need to strengthen economic and financial multilateralism, by reviving the international cooperative spirit that inspired the Bretton Woods agreements of 1944 within the global context of our times.
Originally established in early 2009 at the Scuola Superiore ISUFI (Euromediterranean Law and Politics Section), under the auspices of the University of Salento, Lecce (Italy), the GoL has recently evolved into a fully-fledged, independent association, with a statute of a think-tank. In pursuing its mission, starting with its first report1, the GoL has elaborated proposals to reform global economic and financial governance, and has submitted the proposals to the Leaders of the G20 in anticipation of their periodic summits.
The GoL is now planning to broaden its scope by promoting public debates and discussion events in the area of economic, financial and institutional reforms at the global level, and by establishing links and partnerships with other think-tank organizations that operate in the same field.
The GoL remains open and interested to extend its membership to experts from other countries.
