2011. Vol. 6. No. 1. P. 99–109 [issue contents]


Rakhmangulov M., Deputy Director of the Informational-Analytical G8 Research Centre of the International Organisations Research Institute of the National Research University – Higher School of Economics; E-mail: MRakhmangulov@hse.ru

The paper analyses the security issues on the G8 and G20 agendas. This sphere constitutes one of the most important G8 priorities during last decade and includes a wide range of issues (weapons of mass destruction non-proliferation, different regional problems settlement, fight with terrorism and drug trafficking and others). The G20 has been dealing with the security issues related to economic agenda (fight against corruption and terrorism finance) to date. On basis of G8 documents analysis a conclusion was made that this institution has sufficient flexibility to respond to security issues as need arises. Due to broader and more diverse membership G20 may not have enough flexibility. Security will remain a top priority on the G8 agenda. Possible inclusion of these issues in the G20 agenda can be expected with the leading role of G8 members.
