G20 and the Evolution of the Global Trade and Investment Regime: From Crisis Management to Vision and Leadership?

As a global governance mechanism, the G20 is uniquely positioned to shape the various components of the global trade and investment regime.

This event took place against the backdrop where the pro- and anti-globalization debate has been evolving quickly, with scepticism regarding the benefits arguably gaining substantial popular support, in particular in some parts of the developed world. A week before the third Trade and Investment Working Group meeting in Berlin, this event addressed a series of issues linked to today’s new context and the future of global tradeand investment regime. The event aimed to better understand how the G20 can be most effectivein addressing trade and investment issues in 2017, 2018 and beyond. It was jointly organized byICTSD and the FES Geneva office.
