  • Global governance, good governance, failing governance: like so many buzzwords in the field of international development, the word has come to mean different things to different groups. So what is it, asked the World Economic Forum? In its purest form it describes the structures and decision-making processes that allow a state, organisation or group of people to conduct affairs. The most obvious among these is the government running a country, as well as the administrations and groups that ensure its safety and efficiency. But it’s not just governments that govern: institutions such as the IMF, World Bank and United Nations, for instance, have an authority that is recognised the world over. These bodies take a multilateral approach to world affairs, bringing together leaders of public and private sectors, as well as members of wider society, to achieve commonly accepted goals and tackle threats to international security. The business sector is another piece of the puzzle, mostly concerned with how companies regulate themselves and contribute to the regulation of global frameworks.

  • What of the leaders of tomorrow, asked PwC? How do they see these global trends, and do they have the same priorities as previous generations? We decided to answer some of these questions by undertaking a parallel survey with over 200 young leaders from AIESEC, looking at ttwo groups - CEOs and young leaders - side by side, exploring where they agree and differ, the implications for companies looking to attract the best young talent, and what today’s CEOs can learn from those who are most likely to succeed them. Explore the Tomorrow's leaders today findings on the website, including a 2-pager featuring the key findings in infographics.
