CIGI Experts Outline Prescriptions for Cannes Summit and Beyond in Special Report on G20 Issues


Waterloo, Ont. (PRWEB) October 20, 2011

With a possible euro zone collapse and Greek insolvency likely to dominate the upcoming Cannes summit, G20 leaders are not out of options for finding a solution, a new CIGI special report says. But the major economies have lost their unity of purpose, with governance questions preventing action from taking place, the report warns.

As leaders of the G20 nations prepare for their summit at Cannes, on November 3-4, CIGI experts offer policy analysis on the most critical G20 issues in the special report Prescriptions for the G20: The Cannes Summit and Beyond. The report features 11 commentaries from experts in The Centre for International Governance Innovations (CIGI) G20 Working Group. Each commentary deals with the discrete facets of the G20s work related to a particular pressing issue, including: the future direction of global economic policy; strengthening international financial regulation; the mutual assessment process for resolving global imbalances; ensuring food security; anti-corruption efforts; and international trade.

The entire Prescriptions for the G20 series is available free online via CIGIs website at http://www.cigionline.org/series/prescriptions-g20-cannes-summit-and-beyond

In the run-up to the Cannes summit, CIGI will have a number of its G20 experts available for phone or video link-up interviews via the CIGI broadcast studio in Waterloo, Ontario. To arrange an interview with CIGIs G20 experts, please contact Communications Specialist Declan Kelly at 519.885.2444, ext. 356, or dkelly(at)cigionline(dot)org.
