From Washington to St. Petersburg. Development of the G20 as a New Centre of Global Governance
In the contemporary world, we can see the increasing risk of crises. In the second half of the first decade of the 21st century the most serious consequences were caused by the economic and financial crisis, the eruption of which in 2007 shattered the foundations of the global economy and revealed the need to include the emerging powers within the framework of global economic governance. One of the centres of a global network structure being the forum for a dialogue between states and non-state entities in the sphere of global governance is the group of twenty (G20).

This book is devoted to the analysis of functioning of the G20 at the leaders' level as a relatively new international cooperation club existing since 2008 where top-level representatives of systemically significant countries meet, authorised to make decisions which are of key importance for the international community. The book is divided in two parts. The first part shows the origin, course and meaning of specific historical/political processes which led to the emergence of G20 Leaders'. Also, cause and effect relationships have been indicated and conclusions drawn with regard to the significance and further functioning of the group. Part two is the analysis of preparation, course and effects of subsequent G20 summits in the years 2008-2013.
