2014: From G8 to G7?
The Future of the Gx System and Global Governance

June 2, 2014, Egmont Palace, Brussels
Organized by the Egmont Institute, the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies,
the Ghent Institute for International Studies and the G8 Research Group

On 4-5 June 2014 the leaders of the G7 (the European Union, United States, Canada, Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Italy) will meet in Brussels. This event is extraordinary, as the G8 format including Russia has been suspended due to the dispute over Ukraine. The Egmont Institute, Ghent Institute for International Studies, Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies and the G8 Research Group at University of Toronto invite you to a Pre-summit Conference on Monday 2 June in Brussels. The conference will take stock of the ongoing G7/G8 agenda. Since several of these processes are linked, the conference also addresses part of the G20 agenda.
