From G8 to G20

The G8 summit in the Baltic sea resort of Heiligendamm (6-8 June 2007) was another apex of mobilisation in the global fight against poverty. A wide spectrum of NGOs and alter-globalisation forces organised the most massive protests since years. World Economy & Development In Brief monitored the process towards Heiligendamm. It will observe the G8 policies also in the years to come.
