We assume that other news sources and blogs will have much to say about the G8 Summit (and its pronouncements on climate change), so we're focusing here on this blog on what the G8 had to say about international institutions. The statement is not profound, but it is reassuring to see a commitment to international institutions.
In the 21st century we face new challenges with global impacts, including those we have addressed at this Summit. In responding to these challenges, international institutions have a key role to play, and we reaffirm our commitment to supporting them. We encourage ongoing open dialogue and work on reforming and adapting international institutions so that they be able to respond effectively.
