G20 Legitimacy and Policymaking

Project description

A closer look at G20 club governance

The global agenda is influenced by agreements made by the Group of Seven (G7) of industrialised nations and the Group of Twenty (G20) of industrialised nations and emerging economies. Legitimacy and effectiveness hinges on their ability to demonstrate political leadership – as the world’s permanent steering committee – on a complex agenda that has expanded beyond core economic issues such as financial stability to incorporate issues like sustainable development, climate change, women’s empowerment and migration. The EU-funded G20LAP project will examine whether the dynamics of 'club governance' obstruct substantial change. It will also assess whether the strength of the existing consensus prescribes the extent of democratic policymaking. The results will provide valuable insight into the G-group policy forums.
