The T20 summit assembled 1000 researchers from 68 countries during the past two days in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to present policy recommendations on issues such as future of work, climate action, trade and social inclusion. A joint communique was handed over to G20 Chair and Argentinean President Mauricio Macri that called for more engagement to overcome the challenges faced by multilateral cooperation in all these areas.
The discussions at the T20 Summit made very clear that achieving this goal will not be an easy task. In our view, think tanks need to step up their efforts to improve the effectiveness of the T20 as a responsible stakeholder of global governance and multilateral cooperation.
