The Russian Federation, as host of the 2006 G8, has created Civil G8, an NGO initiative led by Ella Pamfilova, Chair of the Russian Human Rights Commission to promote the development of the institutions of civil society and human rights. During the year, Civil G8 will organize outreach and stakeholder events to involve civil society in discussions of the issues on the G8 agenda. Civil G8 also hosts a website with public discussion forums on those topics (links open in new windows).
Civil G8's Advisory Council includes NGOs and civil society representatives from around the world.
Note: This page includes documents published by Civil 8 as well as other civil society stakeholders.
