The Quest for Security

Both the enthusiasts and critics of the G20 are united in their characterization of the leaders group as an incipient institution of global governance. This chapter presents a different view. First, it probes the origins of the G20 and uses evidence from the earlier G20 finance minister's group to examine whether the G20 has broadened or narrowed agenda-setting in global governance. Second, it considers how the representativeness of the G20 might be expanded in an innovative way. Finally, it returns to the question of whether the G20 needs to be more representative, arguing that a closer investigation of its role suggests it could be more responsive but need not necessarily be more representative.
