Sustained economic growth in China depends in significant part on an effective G20. The future relevance and effectiveness of the G20 will be primarily determined by Chinese leadership. In light of the legacy of Deng Xiaoping’s ‘quiet’ foreign policy approach – Taoguang yanghui, the prospects for Chinese leadership in the G20 are uncertain. There are specific procedural and substantive suggestions for leadership in the G20 that China may find appropriate.

On May 26, Brookings-Tsinghua Center for Public Policy and the Center for Industrial Development and Environmental Governance (Tsinghua University) co-hosted a public lecture featuring Dr. Barry Carin, senior fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, to share his insights on the role of China in global governance.

Barry Carin, Ph.D. in economics of Brown University, is a CIGI (Centre for International Governance Innovation) senior fellow. He has held several Canadian government positions: Treasury board director of evaluation; assistant deputy minister in several departments including for trade and economic policy;G7 sous sherpa; and high commissioner to Singapore. He was the associate director of the Centre for Global Studies at the University of Victoria. He was an editor of the journal Global Governance. He conducts research on future directions for international development, the institutional underpinnings, informal processes and functioning of global economic networks, such as the G20 and on global climate change policy.
