In this prepatory document for CIGI'10 participants,  conference co-chair Jason Blackstock outlines the primary goals for CIGI ’10. First, to explore the potential for action at all levels of government and society — from the bottom up, through multilateral clubs, to the global negotiations — to create tangible progress towards the “Core Elements of Global Action” we know are needed. Second, to produce specific recommendations for targeted actors and forums on how action across these levels can be mobilized and coordinated to maximize net progress.
