In the era of globalisation, G20 has proved to be an effective forum during and after the financial crises. Over the years, G20 has emerged as a premier leaders-led platform to address the challenges confronting the global economy. The G20 sought to encourage short-term as well as long-term solutions to promote human prosperity and well-being. The G20 has no permanent staff or secretariat. Its chair rotates annually and is selected from G20 members clustered in five regional grouping of countries. Since 2008, the G20 Head of States meet periodically at summits to deliberate on an agenda carefully designed to review the world economy and address impending issues through global cooperation. Till the year 2019, fourteen G20 Summits have been concluded.
ICRIER has been involved in research related to G20 issues since more than a decade. Since 2009, we have been organising annual international conferences, prior to the G20 Summit. The discussions in these Conferences have provided a platform for engaging eminent researchers, academicians and policymakers in rich debate on topics of relevance to the G20 Summit. Year after year, the conference has been extremely successful in facilitating exchange of ideas and views at both a scholarly and policy-level.
Given the vast experience, ICRIER has built strong research capabilities and knowledge pool on G20 issues. Our researchers have authored/edited several books and papers on G20 issues and ICRIER has successfully completed various research projects on different aspects of G20. Highlights of ICRIER’s work on G20 is accessible here.
