The upcoming G8 summit will present an opportunity for world leaders to recommit to multilateral efforts to combat terrorism, one of a limited number of issues on which there is a real common interest. Despite incentives for cooperation, however, there will likely be more promise than performance as underlying distrust limits the kind of timely information-sharing required to stop terrorist attacks.
