Shifting Coalitions and Potential Blocs for Asian and Pacific Leadership in the G-20
Policy Dialogue Brief
The Stanley Foundation collaborated with the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, Global Summitry Project at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, and Korea Development Institute to convene the third annual Shanghai conference on Asian leadership and the G-20. This year the Shanghai conference included officials and/or experts from each of the Asia and Pacific nations that are part of the G-20 as well as other countries in the region. The partner organizations want to identify the key ingredients for more efficient, effective, and “forward-looking” global governance. Now with the benefit of four years and seven summits since the first meeting of G-20 leaders in 2008, we can start making preliminary assessments of the G-20 summits’ record in spurring international cooperation.
The latest issue of Courier features an investigation of a 2007 break-in at a South African nuclear storage facility that still unnerves many officials and experts. It also considers the architecture for climate action that needs to be built ahead of this year's global gathering in Paris. Another article looks at our annual global youth conference that brings students together to discuss global issues. Finally, two teachers share how a travel award offers unique professional development.
The Stanley Foundation is looking for a dedicated, dynamic individual who has a passion for working in the field of event management and prefers a small-business atmosphere with opportunities for international travel. Read the full position announcement.
Our bimonthly newsletter looks at the implementation of R2P ten years after it's adoption, as well as climate action, a major factor for meeting the global goal of keeping climate change within 2 degrees Celsius. We explore the development of bold and innovative policy recommendations for the final nuclear summit process. And finally, 20 years of bringing a global mix of high schoolers together for a weekend to build relationships, increase awareness, and discuss global issues.

|Stanley Foundation Annual Conferences
The Stanley Foundation holds two annual conferences, UN Issues and the Strategy for Peace Conference. These bring together experts from the public and private sectors to meet in a distraction-free setting and candidly exchange ideas on pressing foreign policy challenges.

|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. Watch the video.
