The internet has broken down borders and connected the world, so why do nations still deal with each other through outdated institutions? Oxford professor Ian Goldin, the author of the new book Divided Nations, says there needs to be a radical overhaul of global systems.
Ian Goldin is Professor of Globalisation and Development and Director of the Oxford Martin School at Oxford University. Professor Goldin was previously Vice President and Director of Policy at the World Bank after serving as advisor to President Mandela and Chief Executive of the Development Bank of Southern Africa. He has published 17 books, the most recent of which is Divided Nations: Why global governance is failing and what we can do about it (Oxford University Press).
