FSVC's Work with Carnegie Corporation of New York

FSVC's Program with Carnegie Corporation of New York - Overview 

For the past 12 years, FSVC has been implementing truly unique work with the support of Carnegie Corporation of New York.  This work has brought together over a hundred senior-level experts from the United States, Russia, China and India to discuss the interconnected nature of finance, energy and climate-change problems facing each of the four countries - and possible solutions. 


2016 - 2017 Project

Thanks to its current grant, FSVC once again has been able to bring together a group of experts from the United States, Russia, China and India to discuss cyber-security, climate change, global security and the lack thereof, as well as the challenges the global financial system continues to face.

1. Symposium in Beijing (June 10-12, 2016) - FSVC led a group of experts from the United States, Russia, China, India and Europe in continuing discussions from the previous symposia, as well as introducing new topics, including populism as a rising global trend.
