Analyst Says G20 Must Branch Out

Political analyst David Shorr of the Stanley Foundation says while G20 leaders have been doing a good job of discussing and solving international economic issues, they should expand their focus. Shorr says such a large grouping of influential world leaders is the perfect opportunity to discuss other issues such as climate change and nuclear proliferation. Shorr says major international organizations like the U.N. and the G20 should work together toward the same end.

Shorr says the true test of the G20’s effectiveness in the future will be its ability to deal with a range of issues, and move past what he calls the “artificial division” of discussing just the world’s economy.
