The Global Solutions Initiative (GSI) provides recommendations and visions for the G20 on global challenges. The visions rest on recoupling economic prosperity with social prosperity. To generate policy proposals, the GSI brings together major think tanks and other research organizations in its Council for Global Problem-Solving.

To stimulate underlying research and connect researchers to relevant policymakers, the GSI is associated with various research networks sharing the recoupling vision, such as the Social Macroeconomics Network of the ESRC Initiative on Rebuilding Macroeconomics, the OECD Initiative on New Approaches to Economic Challenges (NAEC), and ERINN (Economic Research on Identities, Norms and Narratives).
