Diplomacy Reset: Ten Global Summits to Watch in 2022 (Terrence Mullan, Ania Zolyniak, Council on Foreign Relations)

The COVID-19 pandemic has delayed global summits and undermined the ability of leaders to act on issues that imperil the safety, security, and well-being of every nation’s citizens, including climate change, biodiversity loss, intellectual property rules, and nuclear risks. The unprecedented joint health and economic crisis is also exacerbating divisions between developing and developed countries amid an increasingly polarized U.S.-China rivalry and escalating Russian aggression.

Despite some mild successes, countries made insufficient progress in their 2021 summitry. Several new national leaders and country hosts will be setting the agendas for the first time in 2022. Still, it is unclear whether they will be any more successful than their predecessors were. Here are ten summits set for 2022, where fresh faces will step onto the stage and long-delayed meetings could prove fruitful.
