The Institutional Reform Goals (IRG) effort aims to articulate and advocate for a set of politically feasible post-MDG development goals that focus on the responsibilities of affluent states and the donor community rather than just on outcomes for aid recipients.
The main objectives to be met are to:
1. Articulate and advocate for a set of politically feasible IRGs corresponding to each of the aforementioned six areas, presented through research-based policy papers.
2. Build a broad coalition of academics, civil society organizations and corporations supporting the IRGs.
3. Present and promote the IRGs in the upcoming UNDP consultations on the post-MDG framework, integrating academic consensus and insight into the process.
The potential goal areas:
- Illicit Financial Flows
- Intellectual Property Law
- Participatory and Inclusive Development
- Resource and Borrowing Privileges
- International Trade Protectionism
- International Labor Standards
- Environmental sustainability
