In rudimentary terms the involvement of emerging nations in the G20 brings new voices to the central global stage, allows the articulation of new mes- sages and priorities, and creates expectations about various institutional and policy outcomes from the involvement. While other middle-income countries also participate in the organisation, South Africa’s involvement has two other considerations, namely the “representative” question and the compatibility of other institutional memberships, both referred to below.
