Values20: Behavioral Insights for the G20

Behavioral Insights Germany and Saudi Arabia

The Values 20 is an emerging global community which has come together for the first time in 2020 to actively engage with the G20 process. As a multidisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners, we seek to support the G20 and the wider world by finding people-centered public policy solutions based on values.

Over the last months, a group of 84 delegates has contributed to the development of three Policy Briefs in the areas of Global Values, Leadership Values, and Quality of Life. Our Policy Briefs are largely built on behavioral research, using empirical evidence to demonstrate the impact of values on people’s behaviors. The key policy recommendations will be included in the V20 Communiqué and officially released during the V20 Summit on 10 November.

Policy Paper: G20 Protocol on Forced Migration

Behavioral Insights Germany and Saudi Arabia

The burden-sharing problem of forced migration continues to threaten the lives and living conditions of millions. Previous attempts to address this challenge have not only failed to mobilize collective action but also inflicted substantial financial losses on G20 countries.

In analogy to the Kyoto Protocol, the framework embeds a multinational exchange platform that balances national interests and capabilities of its member states. By offering member states different options to support burden-sharing, the framework elevates the unexploited gains of cooperation and maximizes incentives for states to join the treaty.
