G-20 Experts to Brief Press on Summit Expectations

Los Cabos, Mexico – American, Canadian and Mexican policy experts who study international summitry and the global economy will brief journalists at the International Media Center in Los Cabos, Mexico, as world leaders begin discussions at the G-20 Summit.
WHEN: 14:00 today (Monday)
WHERE: MM2 Briefing Room, International Media Center, Grand Faro
WHO: The following experts will be available at the briefing:
• Alan S Alexandroff, Director of the Global Summitry Project, Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto
• Don Brean, Professor of Finance and Economics, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto
• Mariana Magaldi de Sousa, Center for Research and Teaching in Economics, Mexico City
• David Shorr, Program Officer for Global Leadership, The Stanley Foundation
• Yves Tiberghien, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of British Columbia
Multilateral organizations like the G-20 are increasingly considered key decision-making venues for world leaders. But these gatherings of traditional G-8 countries and emerging economies are difficult for journalists to follow closely.
The above experts will discuss the role of the G-20 and expectations for the Los Cabos Summit, including details of the agenda and consequences of recent European elections. They will provide insights into what defines a successful summit.

Nuclear Security Video Nuclear Security Video
The Stanley Foundation produced a 13-minute video looking at what needs to be done to stop terrorist groups from acquiring enough fissile material to make a bomb. The foundation talked with over a dozen diverse and distinguished experts from the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group and the Fissile Materials Working Group to see how today's patchwork of voluntary arrangements can be forged into a long-lasting system.
