ABOUT G20 INSIGHTS
The G20 Insights Platform offers policy proposals to the G20. It is a new initiative of the Think 20 Engagement Group.
The Policy Briefs, produced by Task Forces from the Think20 (T20) Group and other sources, are clustered in policy areas and describe either recommendations or visions.
- Recommendations are significant, implementable policy proposals for specified G20 decision makers. Each recommendation contains a statement of the underlying policy challenge and the central policy proposal including an analysis of the relevant considerations and a rationale for the proposal. Furthermore, recommendations will typically be embedded in a current policy framework by linking to relevant G20 initiatives (e.g. agreements, policies, and monitoring reports) as well as background analysis. This comprehensive overview will support sound G20 analysis and policies.
- Visions explain an approach to policy making and communicate it to the public.
Distinguished experts from the T20 network (Think Tanks from G20 countries) and the Council for Global Problem-Solving will be the primary contributors to this G20-insights platform. The G20 Insights Platform is complementary to the G20 Information Centre by the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto, which provides online official documents by the G20 group. Germany has assumed the G20 Presidency on December 1, 2016. The German government has mandated the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) and the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) with organizing the T20 process during its presidency until November 30, 2017. T20 Task Forces have been established to prepare Policy Briefs for the ongoing dialogue with G20 decision makers and other relevant stakeholders.
The G20 Insights Platform – Advisory Board decides on Policy Brief submission to the Insights Platform and its composition mirroring the G20 troika setting (the former, the current and the future G20 Presidency) for promoting relevance and coherence. It has the important responsibility to ensure that all contributions to the Insights Platform are of high quality, novelty and implementability.
