Abstract

The G8, G20 and BRICS (Gx2) capability for global governance is often assessed based on the institutional performance of the global governance functions of deliberation, direction-setting, decision-making, delivery and the development of global governance. Deliberation is regarded as face-to-face discussions among the members encoded in their collective documents. Direction-setting is defined as a collective affirmation of shared principles and norms. Decision-making is understood as credible, clear, collective commitments with sufficient precision and obligation. Delivery is considered as stated compliance with collective decisions. Finally, global governance development is understood as a capability of a particular Gx institution to use other international institutions and create its own global governance mechanisms. All global governance functions should be properly balanced in the institution discourse for successful implementation of its mission. Deliberation and direction-setting provide foundation for making decisions and subsequent delivery on them. This article focuses on the Gx delivery function as an important indicator of international institutions’ effectiveness and, in particular, on the delivery legitimacy.

Keywords: G8, G20, BRICS, global governance, commitments, delivery legitimacy
