Local political pressures seem to frame and steer conversations about difficult financial regulatory questions of global impact. Translating from one language to another or from one specialty to another falls short of working together and may even block finding creative ways of describing critical questions. The online conference model is one attempt to address these methodological concerns, and this paper presents a variation of this model, Meridian 180, which is an experiment of transpacific collaboration headquartered at Cornell Law School.
