Beyond the media hype, the digitization of money is transforming cross border money flows, sovereign monetary authority and the global financial system as we know it. The student-led Strategic Studies Group (SSG) has convened a panel with leaders in this space to discuss current developments and explore implications for the future. The webinar will be a moderated discussion and will include Q&A from the audience. We welcome your input, and we encourage you to submit questions in advance to help formulate the discussion (send to: [email protected]).
