G20 – Reviewing membership conditions for the G20

Home / G20 – Reviewing membership conditions for the G20


Since its conception the G20 has had the current members, which together represent over 80% of the global GDP, over 66% of the world’s population and over 75% of international trade. Apart from its fixed memberships, the rotating chair of the G20 often invites other countries to attend meetings as well and many European countries are represented via the European Commission. The recent Russian invasion of Ukraine has given rise to a debate about whether countries that engage in wars of aggression should be permitted to participate in a forum like the G20. This coincides with existing discussion about whether the G20 membership should be extended or if there should be a bigger role for organisations like the IMF or international groupings like the EU or the AU within the G20 framework. The committee should discuss its current membership and decide if any changes are necessary and what the conditions for the removal or admittance of members should be.
