Abstract [en]

In 2008–2011, the Group of 20 swiftly eclipsed the Group of 7, created in themid-1970s as an informal mechanism for stabilizing markets and facilitatingtransnational currency exchange and investment. Several observers have expressedthe view that the former, broader group is also destined to appropriatethe role of the Group of 8, the G7’s pioneering successor in the realmof nontraditional security. This article examines the G7/8 legacy of forgingquasi-permanent institutional arrangements and frameworks in this policyarea and goes on to gauge nontraditional security initiatives subsequentlylaunched by the G-20. Having juxtaposed the past record of these bodiesand analyzed the interests and power dynamics that influence member stateaction in the short and long term, the article outlines three basic options forhow the relationship between the G-20 and the G7/8 may evolve.
