GES 2017 in Berlin
The next GES will be held in May 2017 in Berlin. There, concrete output of the T20 process, which is led this year by the Kiel Institute and the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), will be discussed and presented to support and advise the German G20-Presidency and future G20 summits.
The “Think Tank 20” group is the G20 nations' coalition of research institutions and think tanks. IfW and DIE plan to reorganize the T20 activities, in order to establish an ongoing process beyond the German G20 Presidency.
The GES should become the central forum for research-based and solution-oriented exchange around G20 issues in the future.
