Reframing Goals and Priorities of the G20 Agenda in a Post-COVID 19 World

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every nation in the world, highlighting how globally interconnected we are. To mitigate the health, social and economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis, the world needs effective global responses. However, multilateral cooperation has been facing dramatic headwinds before and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The G20 could play a key role in revitalizing multilateral cooperation, by pushing for new ways and means to deal with global challenges. The Italian Presidency of the G20 in 2021 can provide fresh political impulse for the G20 to advance a renewed global governance agenda. The web meeting will discuss the tasks and policy priorities of the 2021 Italian Presidency of the G20 at the time of Covid-19. The meeting will take place in the framework of the project “The Role of the G20 in Promoting Global Governance: Challenges and Opportunities of the Italian Presidency in 2021”, funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) and the Compagnia di San Paolo of Turin.
