With the approach of the G20’s Rome Summit on October 30–31, 2021, questions are growing about how successfully G20 summits have performed since their start in 2008, what the prospects are this year, and what proposals would propel success.

These are critical questions, as the Rome Summit will focus on the unprecedented threats of the COVID-19 health pandemic, the climate crisis, the associated energy crisis that could cripple the fragile economic recovery currently underway and the challenges to recent hard-won gains in advancing gender equality, open trade and much else, amid the rising inequality in most G20 countries now.

To address these key questions, the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary History and the G20 Research Group have assembled leading G20 practitioners and academic experts to provide insights and answers.
