Supply-Demand Model for Developing a Presidency Proposals for Reform Agenda and Priorities in Informal International Institutions (G20, G8, BRICS)
2012. Vol. 7. No. 4. P. 7–17 [issue contents]
The paper presents a supply-demand model for developing presidency’s proposals for agenda and priorities in informal institutions such as G20, G8 or BRICS, based on the transformed model for evaluating Presidencies of the Council of the EU.
Within the model the presidency effectiveness is based on its capability to match supply and demand as a combination of several factors: 1) the agenda, priorities and summit decisions respond to a large degree to the key global governance challenges; 2) internal demand (presidency priorities) and external demand (global governance challenges and other members’ interests) are well balanced; 3) the institution capabilities are utilized at most; 4) the choice of the presidency role (organizer, mediator, political leader, national representative) conforms to the combination of external (relevance of the issue, degree to which it has been explored, degree of trust in the chair, multiple brokerage, “shadow of the future”, and political sensitivity of the issue) and internal conditions (importance of the issue for the chair, commitments of the government, preparations, and existence of different views on the issue in the government).
The model can be used for planning and preparing a presidency, as well as for its subsequent evaluation.
The “supply-demand” model was elaborated with support of the RHRF within the framework of a research theme “Elaborating a Supply – Demand Model to Balance External Demand and National Priorities in the Presidency Proposals for Agenda in G20, G8 and BRICS”, project №12-03-00563.
