CIGI Senior Fellow Susan Schadler offers a review of the founding of the G20 following the financial crisis of 2008 and considers the summit's role as the world economy moves further into recovery. Without the urgency of a financial crisis, can the G20 focus and make progress on substantial economic issues? Schadler closes by questioning whether the G20 remains the best forum for these discussions given the other functional bodies already at work, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB).
