Abstract

[The only dissent that has ever managed to constrain club diplomacy has come from the emerging powers, which the oligarchs were not able to exclude from their inner circle for long. Yet caution is in order. Demands expressed by these new powers have never been vociferous, their discretion being strengthened by the quiet force of historic fatality. Had they been kept out of things too long, international regulation would have lost all its meaning. But their admission has not been particularly credible: emerging powers are invited, as noted, only to attend the closing banquet, and then, relegated to a “second session,” they have not truly penetrated the inner sanctum which continues, until proof to the contrary, to exist in a world of its own. Even plenary sessions seem to be preempted by prior G8 deliberation.]
