The G8 and G20 are two different formats of international cooperation, they have different foci, different purposes and different agendas. But what is true is that some part of the G8 agenda is being shifted from the G8 to G20. This is economic agenda, and more and more so the development agenda.

Marina Larionova, Dr. of Political Science, Head of the International Organisations Research Institute, University - Higher School of Economics; Head of International Programmes, National Training Foundation; E-mail: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.orgThis paper attempts to put G8 and G20 institutions within the same assessment paradigm on the basis of a functional framework. This approach allows comparing the G8 and G20 across at least three groups of indicators: performance of global governance functions, accountability and compliance performance; contribution towards global governance agenda; and engagement with the other international institutions. It begins with outlining the methodology, and goes over to the main findings and conclusions on each of the dimensions. Thus the study contributes to building a quantifiable evidence base for an assessment of the G20 and G8 effectiveness and to inform forecast of their future roles.

The assessment of the G8 and G20 agendas on development, the capabilities of two institutions to respond to and address the changes occurring in global agenda for development is implemented on the basis of the commitments made and compliance performance. The commitments database covers the G8 pledges made during the period of 1975 – 2009, and the G20 commitments on development made since its first summit in 2008. The paper examines the capacities for cooperation of two institutions and possible division of labor between them. Given the forthcoming chairmanship of Russia in the G8 summitry in 2014, the recommendations presented aim to define priorities for the agenda and facilitate the promotion of Russia’s national interests in international development assistance at the G8 forum.

Mark Rakhmangulov, Deputy Director of the G8 Research Centre, International Organisations Research Institute, University – Higher School of Economics; E-mail: MRakhmangulov@hse.ruThe paper analyses the process of establishment and development of the national system of international development assistance in Russia. The analysis covers the period starting from 2005 when key national priorities for international development assistance were defined and amounts of foreign aid were substantially increased on the threshold of Russia’s G8 Presidency preparations. The emerging structure of governance, the aid flows and amounts of allocated ODA, as well as the funding priorities in the sphere of development assistance are described on the basis of the analysis of official documents, statements and speeches of officials, reports of international institutions, and statistics available for public access. Russia’s participation in multilateral international organizations and institutions in the sphere of development cooperation is also considered. Drawing on the results of the analysis the author proposes recommendations for further development of the national system of international development assistance in Russia.

Peter Ivan Hajnal, Research Fellow at the Centre for International Studies, Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto (Toronto, Canada);E-mail: email@example.com This paper examines the role and impact of civil society in increasing the accountability of the G8 and G20, with particular emphasis on the 2010 summits: the back-to-back June Muskoka G8 and Toronto G20 summits, and the November Seoul G20 summit. The paper begins with a clarification of the key concepts of civil and uncivil society, and accountability. It then discusses for what and to whom the G8 and the G20, as global governance institutions, are accountable. This is followed by a look at the kinds of civil society organizations (CSOs) that play a role in the nexus with the G8 and G20. It then considers the motivations for, and range of, civil society interaction with the G8 and G20. Finally, the paper analyzes how and to what extent civil society engagement has, (or, as the case may be, has not), had an impact on the G8 and G20 accountability. Brief concluding observations end the paper.

Vadim Lukov, Ambassador-at-Large, Deputy Representative of the President of Russia in the G8, Foreign Affairs Ministry Coordinator for G20 and BRIC Affairs; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org The paper analyses results of the G8 and G20 summits held in Canada in June 2010 and their consequences for evolution of both forums and for their interaction. Among major achievements of the Toronto summit the author points out commitments on fiscal consolidation, IFI reform and on the start of country reviews of the implementation of the Framework Agreement on strong, sustainable and balanced growth. The G8 summit at Muskoka is viewed as a successful attempt to bring the G8 “back to basics” model – a leaders’ driven process at the center of which stands their informal direct dialogue. Key practical outcomes of the summit are the initiative on Maternal and Child Health Care, anti-terrorist action plan and decision to carry on the Global Partnership program in its present form. Russia’s position on main issues on G8 and G20 agenda is presented in the article.

John J. Kirton, Dr. of International Relations, Director of the G8 Research Group, Associate Professor of Political Science, Research Associate of the Centre for International Studies and Fellow of Trinity College at the University of Toronto, Canada; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgThe article examines how and why Canada’s twin 2010 summits worked well separately and together, and how the future G8-G20 partnership can be improved to the benefit of both in the years ahead. The author makes the comparative analysis of the performance of Muskoka G8 and Toronto G20 summits, identifying the synergistic convergence, and explores the causes of the successes and shortcomings of each alone and both together applying the closely related but distant concert equality model of G8 governance and the systemic club model of G20 governance as analytical guides. On the basis of this analysis, the author suggests the ways for strengthening G8-G20 partnership.
