Launch of the Civil20, Moscow, Russia

After many years of lobbying by international civil society for a formal civil society process and space at the G20, the Civil20 was launched under the G20 Presidency of Russia, and a meeting of the Civil20 was held in Moscow, Russia in June 2013.

This policy brief from SAFPI looks at the purpose behind Civil20, and  gives an overview of the meeting.

The main goal of the Civil20 is to promote dialogue between global civil society, politicians and decision-makers in relation to the priorities set out in the official agenda for 2013, with particular focus on: growth through quality jobs and investment; growth through trust and transparency; and growth through effective regulation.
