As host of the sixth G20 summit, France is under pressure to succeed in resolving visible conflicts and delivering on the existing agenda. In partnership with Institut français des relations internationals (IFRI), CIGI co-hosted a series of meetings in Paris from November 29 to December 1, 2010, to consider the fundamental issues facing the G20. Participants concluded that the G20 needs to show it can consistently deliver on agenda results, suggesting that if it cannot define its role, it risks becoming irrelevant. This report, which includes a summary of the meetings by Deanne Leifso, papers by CIGI experts (Colin Bradford, Barry Carin, Paul Jenkins and Gordon Smith) and three Issues Notes from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, previews tasks for the French G20 presidency and considers the immediate and legacy challenges the G20 faces.
