Conference Examines Leader-level Problem Solving


Earlier this year, experts on international politics and policy gathered in Chicago for a conference on “The Apex of Influence—How Summit Meetings Build Multilateral Cooperation.” With the G-8 Summit at Camp David, and Chicago serving as the host of the NATO Summit, it was an ideal setting for a broader and deeper consideration of the role of summit diplomacy.

The meeting was organized by the Stanley Foundation, the Global Summitry Project of University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, and the Roberta Buffett Center for International and Comparative Studies at Northwestern University.

Participants examined the contributions of summitry to global problem solving and how the involvement of leaders is often crucial for progress.
