The Multilateral Organization–G8 Connection: Arguments and Evidence The Debate among Competing Schools of Thought To date, the debate on the relationship between the G8 and MOs, especially in regard to the critical dimension of compliance and implementation, has centered on three major competing schools of thought.  It argues that the work of those MOs controlled by G7 members is an important cause of compliance with G8 commitments by G8 members when those organizations are directly relevant to the particular G8 commitments in question (Kokotsis 1999, Kokotsis and Daniels 1999).

These leaders are ultimately responsible abroad and at home for both health and foreign policy, including its peace and security core. They use their summits simultaneously to make many commitments in both fields and in the closely related ones of human rights, climate change and development, including the Millennium Development Goals. Moreover, commitments made at G8 summits in these fields are quickly complied with by the member governments to a substantial degree. Such compliance is caused, and can thus be improved, by the leaders themselves, through crafting their commitments to catalyze compliance, and by using their international institutions and own governments to help implement them.

But none has claimed that this is because the multilateral system works so well on its own, or because the G8 merely bows to the UN’s will, as opposed to the US’s, capitalists’ or market’s. 28 Making Global Economic Governance Effective The Available Evidence The most recent attempts to analyze the course and causes of effective compliance with and implementation of G8 commitments across a wide array of issues areas and countries has yielded a rich repertoire of evidence for developing and testing hypotheses and guiding future empirical research (Kirton 2006a, 2006b, Kokotsis 2006, Panova 2006, Savić 2006, Scherrer 2006, Stephens 2006, Ullrich 2006).
