Files

Description

This collection of papers from two conferences on the role of the G8 provides a critical, scholarly assessment of the G's prospects in addressing challenges of the post Cold War world of globalization and deepening integration. The text explores and challenges the logic of contemporary critics to offer improved explanations of the circumstances under which G7/G8 is effective in addressing its traditional agenda, the new financial challenges of the modern era, and the broader once domestic issues of employability and crime that now occupy a central place on the international agenda.
