Professor defines G-20, its role in international conflict resolution

Making sense of the complex issues the G-20 will tackle at their summit in Pittsburgh this month will be made a little easier thanks to a series of YouTube videos featuring Penn State educators. The list of challenges the G-20 faces is daunting: the global economic crisis, sustainable development, terrorist financing and climate change, among others.

Scott Bennett, distinguished professor from Penn State's Department of Political Science, introduces the series by defining the G-20. Bennett also shares insights on the G-20's role in his area of expertise -- international conflict resolution.
