RUSSIA’S PRESIDENCY IN G20: THE ROLE OF CIVIL SOCIETY IN FORMING THE AGENDA

14:45-16:00 Pavilion 5, Business Breakfast Hall 5.4


As Russia assumes the Presidency in the G20 and G8 in 2013 and 2014, respectively, civil society can provide important input into the agenda and outcomes, with particular emphasis on sustainable development and social welfare. What are the key priorities in the G20 agenda for non-governmental organizations, and how might the dialogue with civil society be expanded? Should a Civil 20 and Civil 8 be considered by the Russian government?


Moderator:
Alena Peryshkina, Head of Secretary, G8/G20 Russian NGOs working group
Panelists:
Nancy Alexander, Director, Economic Governance Program, Heinrich Boell Foundation
Vladimir Chernigov, Director, Social and Industrial Foodservice Institute

Highlights

We believe that the G20 can be very effective in helping to raise public finance through financial transactions. That’s another means to tackle not only the problem[s] of food security [and] climate change, but also the challenge of the Millennium Development Goals.

Nancy Alexander
Director, Economic Governance Program, Heinrich Boell Foundation

Russia actually has already established a very effective institutional arrangement for involving civil society.
