Beyond the Classroom presents "The G-20's Rescue of the Global Economy: For What and For Whom?"

In the face of the 2008-2010 global financial crisis, two prominent global actors the G-8 and the G-20 took unprecedented action to rescue the global economy. Over the past decade, world leaders have come together at G-8 and G-20 summits to address the world's major economic and development challenges. This seminar will explore the evolving roles of these two global actors and examine how effective they have been in responding to the global financial crisis, in promoting financial stability, and in advancing sustainable economic growth and prosperity. Most important, this analysis will examine the G-20's legitimacy and relevance, its priorities and commitments for global action, and who benefits and loses from its efforts to reshape the global economic agenda. Dr. James V. Riker serves on the Board of Directors for FIM: Forum for Democratic Global Governance in Montréal, Canada, which hosted the first Civil Society Dialogue with the G20 Host Sherpa in June 2010. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 29, 2011
