How can the accountability of the EU's actions in the G20 be increased? Nine researchers from Leiden University and Erasmus University Rotterdam drafted an extensive study on the role of the European Union in the G20 with recommendations to enhance the accountability of the European Union's actions in the G20.
The European Parliament is currently working on an extensive report on the role of the European Union in international economic fora such as the G20, the OECD or the IMF. In order to prepare this report the European Parliament commissioned in-depth studies on several international economic fora.
One of the flagship studies was the one on the role of the European Union in the G20. The European Research Centre for Economic and Financial Governance (EURO-CEFG) got successfully selected to write this study and the study was very much welcomed by the European Parliament.
On 17 June, EURO-CEFG scientific director Prof. Dr. Fabian Amtenbrink and EURO-CEFG scientific coordinator René Repasi were invited by the European Parliament to present the main findings of the report and to discuss its conclusions with its Members. The framework for accountability of international economic fora developed by the EURO-CEFG study will now form the basis of the upcoming report of the European Parliament.
