The G8 is Dead. Long Live the G7.
Under the presidency of Vladimir Putin, Russia has become increasingly isolated from the norms and mechanisms of international society. This policy brief explores this trend within the context of ‘G’ summitry and in particular recent summits since Russia’s suspension from the G8 in 2014. It strongly recommends against a return to an expanded G8, and instead favours a clear break with this format and a renewed focus on the G7 and its underlying principles.
