«Группа двадцати» как двигатель прогресса

Карин Б., Шор Д.
Translator: Е. А. Сафонкина

The presented publication is a translation of the similarly named article by B. Carin and Shorr firstly published in The Stanley Foundation Policy Analysis Brief in February 2013. The translation was made with the permission of the authors.

The article analyses the G20 effectiveness. The authors discuss negative statements on this international multilateral institute and analyse the G20 agenda management to improve its effectiveness. The tools used by the G20 are also explored. The authors suggest recommendations on improving the G20 effectiveness. The G20 should focus on priority issues: food security, commodity-price volatility, challenges of energy and climate change. To keep the G-20 from being overwhelmed by persistent agenda creep, it should devise ways to sunset its involvement with certain issues, perhaps by handing off efforts on an issue to other bodies or spinning them off into self-sustaining initiatives. Such filters as governance gap, global implications, need for high-level attention, complementarity, clarity, proportionate scale are recommended to develop the G20 agenda. In the authors’ view the real key to the G20 effectiveness is focusing all effort on the avenues that best rectify the given problem.
