Stanley Foundation at the G-20 Summit in Seoul
Global Leadership Evolves with the First G-20 in Asia
The G-20 met in Seoul, South Korea, November 11-12, 2010. With an official slogan of “Shared Growth Beyond Crisis,” the G-20 summit continued to focus on balanced and sustainable growth within the global economy. The broadening of the summit agenda, to include development this time, was a significant step in the group's evolution.
Also worth noting is summit's location in Asia for the first time since the G-20 began meeting at the heads-of-state level. In the realm of global governance and multilateral cooperation, there is no clearer sign of Asia's growing prominence than the composition of these "G grouping" summit meetings, where Asian participation has grown from one G-8 member to six in the G-20. The increase in Asian seats at the "high table" of global diplomacy—especially with the addition of India and China—is significant beyond mere symbolism.
The Stanley Foundation has a long history of working on global governance issues and examining these developments. Two foundation staff members, Keith Porter and David Shorr, were on-site for the Seoul G-20 meeting. Please take a look at these resources:
Stanley Foundation staff members were also on-site for previous G-8/G-20 meetings. See our resource pages for past summits:
