Abstract

For decades, the OECD constituted an economic and political "club" of Western countries focused around the transatlantic axis. Today, it faces unprecedented challenges as the world economy shifts to the East and the South. In response, the OECD is undergoing meaningful reform: it is becoming more inclusive by broadening out membership, whilst taking a more open-minded approach to policy, recognising there are more ways to economic growth than the "OECD way". The OECD needs to engage the new economic players, but do they really need the OECD? Using primary data, official documents, semi-structured interviews with high officials and secondary sources, this paper evaluates the prospective roles the organization could play in international economic governance at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
