About G20 Insights

The G20 Insights Platform offers policy proposals to the G20. It is an initiative of the Think20 Engagement Group.

The Policy Briefs, produced by Task Forces from the Think20 (T20) Group and other sources, are clustered by task forces and policy areas.

Policy Recommendations are significant, implementable policy proposals for specified G20 decision makers. Each recommendation contains a statement of the underlying policy challenge and the central policy proposal, including an analysis of the relevant considerations and a rationale for the proposal. Furthermore, recommendations will typically be embedded in a current policy framework by linking to relevant G20 initiatives (e.g. agreements, policies, and monitoring reports) as well as background analysis. This comprehensive overview will support sound G20 analysis and policies.

Policy briefs also contain vision statements which explain an approach to policy making and communicate it to the public.
