From London to L’Aquila: Building a Bridge between the G20 and the G8

Written by Eric Helleiner and Paola Subacchi
Authors: Eric Helleiner and Paola Subacchi

From many perspectives, the London Summit of the G20 leaders at the beginning of April 2009 was a success – with discussion framed around crisis resolution and the strengthening of the international financial architecture. Beyond its concrete achievements, the Summit morphed into an ongoing process with a rolling agenda, rather than remaining a one-off event. While the Italian Presidency of the G8 has a hard task ahead, there is scope for building a meaningful bridge between London and the G8 meeting in L’Aquila in July 2009, continuing and strengthening the economic governance reform process.
