Antalya G20 Summit gives birth to new infrastructure finance model: Will it be for the better?

Center of Concern | Mon, Nov 16, 2015

On November 15-16, 2015, the Leaders of the Group of 20 countries meet in Antalya, Turkey, for their annual summit. After five years in which the issue of investment in infrastructure has been consistently on the G20’s agenda, at this summit there will be already a substantial number of work products for the group to consider. Throughout these studies and papers –most of them commissioned from international organizations such as the World Bank and OECD – the contours of the G20’s vision for infrastructure finance emerge with increasing clarity. How will the balance between financial interests and the human rights of citizens and communities seeking access to better infrastructure be affected? The following articles offer a good glimpse.
