The Group of Seven (G7) is an inter-governmental political forum, composed by the world’s largest advanced economies and wealthiest liberal democracies. Recently, an idea of expanding the membership of the G7 to a Democracy Ten (D10) has been proposed.
The first of the Global Challenges Foundation policy perspective series examines the D10 and possible developments for global governance.
Jens Orback, Executive Director of the Global Challenges Foundation, interviews Daniel Schatz, the author of the report D10 – A Global Coalition for Democracy in the Making? as well as political scientist, author on the topic of international relations, and visiting scholar at Georgetown University. Comments are provided by Birgitta Ohlsson, Director Political Parties at the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and Sweden’s former MInister for European Union Affairs, together with Folke Tersman, Professor of Philosophy at Uppsala University.
