With the G20 Leaders' Summit now at an end, CIGI Senior Fellow Susan Schadler comments on the contents of the final communiqué noting its lack of concrete commitments overall. While discussions and messaging touched on rebounding economies and sustaining the recovery, Schadler notes that the attention of both the press and leaders was dominated by Sryia or security related issues. What's next for the G20? Baring a further crisis, the G20 may simply fold into a format of continuing statements of commitment without much action.
