General Information

The G7 Research Group (formerly the G8 Research Group) is an independent source of information, analysis and research on the institutions, issues and members of the Group of Seven (formerly the Group of Eight) and the G7 Summit.[2]

The G8 Research Group was founded in 1987 at the University of Toronto. It is a global network of scholars, professionals in the media, business, government and research communities, and students interested in the ongoing activity of the G7 and G8 and related bodies, including the G20. (In February 2008, the G20 Research Group was established to focus more directly on the G20.)[2]

The G8 Research Group is supported by the International Relations Program based at the Centre for International Studies within the Munk School of Global Affairs, Robarts Library, University of Trinity College’s John Graham Library and the Department of Political Science. The G8 Research Group was founded by Professor John Kirton, who is also the current director.

During the year, the G8 Research Group conducts programs of research, teaching, and information and public education. Along with its companion the G20 Research Group, the G8 Research Group works with Newsdesk to produce special publications on the G8 and the G20.

The G8 Research Group runs the G8 Information Centre, which includes an electronic archive of documents related to the summit and its ministerial meetings as well as research and analysis. Trinity College's John Graham Library hosts a physical archive for G8 materials.

Colleagues at the International Organizations Research Institute at Moscow's State University Higher School of Economics have established the G8 Research Centre, which has been conducting research on Russia's compliance with G8 commitments since 2006.

Colleagues at Oxford University and the London School of Economics created the G8 Research Group LSE/Oxford, which has produced reports on climate change and the G8 and the Outreach Five countries of Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa.

The G8 Research Group maintains a research division that consists of more than 150 undergraduate and graduate student analysts. The student research division produces internationally recognized reports on compliance by the G8+5 with commitments made at annual G8 summits. It also studies the influence of civil society organizations and the media on the G8 summit agenda and priorities. The student research division of the G8 Research Group is currently chaired by Michael Humeniuk. Past chairs include Netila Demneri (2010-2011), Erin Fitzgerald (2009-2010), Sarah Yun (2008-2009), Clifton van der Linden (2007-2008), Janet Chow (2006-2007), Vanessa Corlazzoli (2005-2006), Anthony Navaneelan (2004-2005), Bob Papanikolau (2003-2004), Salimah Ebrahim (2002-2003) and Gina Stephens (2001-2002).


The G7 Research group also owns and maintains the website JogNog, a site that provides information to students.
