The G20 and International Relations Theory

Perspectives on Global Summitry

Edited by Steven Slaughter

The future of the G20 is uncertain despite being developed to address the 2008 global financial crisis. This book considers the significance of the G20 by engaging various accounts of International Relations theory to examine the political drivers of this form of global governance. International Relations theory represents an array of perspectives that analyse the factors that drive the G20, how the G20 influences world politics and in what ways the G20 could or should be reformed in the future.

Conclusion: International Relations theory and the future of the G20

Steven Slaughter

Abstract

This volume has shown that the overriding virtue of IR theory as a body of thought is its capacity to reflect on world politics in multiple ways and thereby see various political drivers and dynamics in operation. This concluding chapter considers the reoccurring themes and the points of contention evident in the volume and thereby highlights some important issues facing the future of G20 studies and the G20 as a part of the broader arrangements of global governance.
