Think Tank 7 Summit G7 Engagement Group
The Think Thank 7 (T7) is an engagement group that brings together the leading Think Tanks from the G7 countries in order to analyze and make recommendations on key issues of the G7 presidency.
In 2019, the French Institute of International Relations (Ifri) holds the T7 Presidency and organizes its summit on June 5 in Paris. In addition to the Think Tanks of the seven countries, Ifri involve African and European Think Tanks.
Three topics will be mainly discussed: international trade, development, but also multilateralism and defense of democracies. A short paper on each topic will be written by its French leader and then discussed with the Think Tank partners. The outcome of this meeting will be translated into a short recommendation paper for the G7 presidency.
