Welcome to Tracking the London Summit 2009!

Over the following week, this blog will highlight original research and commentary on the G20 London Summit on the world economy, to take place on 2 April 2009. Expert bloggers will report on key developments towards the summit and will attempt to provide a snapshot of activity from inside the G20 International Media Centre.

Specifically, this blog will examine international responses to the deepening economic crisis and possible trajectories of global economic governance. A critical test for the London Summit will be in its ability to forge collective action among the established industrialized countries (G8) and the major emerging powers (G5), not only to stabilize the global economy but to develop anticipatory mechanisms for future crises. 

Tracking the London Summit 2009 is an initiative of CIGI and Chatham House, within their joint Study Group on Global Economic Governance. Keep up to date by bookmarking this site or subscribe to the , and add your comments to keep the discussion ongoing.

About the Organizers

The Economic Diplomacy research project of CIGI – The Centre for International Governance Innovation – explores the rise of the emerging powers (or BRICSAM) and the resulting expansion of their activity in political and diplomatic settings. Led by Dr. Andrew F. Cooper, the project examines the intersection among foreign policy, economic power and global governance in a shifting global order. For more information, click here. 
The International Economics research area of Chatham House is devoted to the study of international economic issues and policies. Led by Dr. Paola Subacchi, its goal is to anticipate emerging themes, provide accurate and policy-oriented research, and actively contribute to public debate. The strength of work on international economics lies in the scope of its coverage, and in its ability to analyse economic issues within a broad geopolitical context.
