This paper briefly explores the broad patterns of summit meetings be- tween heads of state and government at the international level. It first looks at the role and place of the G20 in today’s international governance. It then goes on to uncover the longer-term trends of summit diplomacy since the creation of the G7 in the 1970s. It finally draws some reflections about what the G7 and G20 summits, in spite of their limitations, have brought to global governance.
