Abstract

Mexico, as the chair of the Group of 20 (G20) Summit in 2011, provided the opportunity for think tanks to interact with the G20 presidency. During the conference, topics such as economic development, green growth, and the mechanism of the G20 Summit itself were all discussed. The Mexican Council on Foreign Relations (COMEXI) and the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs created Think 20, a think tank meeting, which initiated a forum for think tanks to debate the leaders’ agenda and make proposals. It was suggested that the role of the G20 should be shifted towards being a global steering group instead of a pure crisis committee. The creation of the G20 and the T20 to support it exemplifies how think tanks can be involved in foreign policy-making procedures. For Mexico, it has more say in the international distribution of power.
