The World Economic Forum in Davos 2008

The World Economic Forum in Davos is an important event in the international calendar for business and politics.

ODI's director, Simon Maxwell, attends this annual forum and is writing a series of four blogs offering his reflections and predictions on how the debates will be taken forward in 2008.

ODI also participated in YouTube's The Davos Question, offering a range of views from Overseas Development Institute researchers to the question: 'What one thing do you think that countries, companies or individuals must do to make the world a better place in 2008?'
