The role of the G8

The G8, otherwise known as the Group of Eight, is an assembly of world leaders who meet annually to discuss global issues.  Each year, the G8 holds a Leaders’ Summit, in which Heads of State and Government of member countries meet to discuss and attempt to reconcile global issues.  Although the G8 is best known for its annual summits, it works throughout the year to tackle important contemporary topics such as the economy and climate change.  The G8 discusses and creates global policies.  However, adherence to these policies is not obligatory, and other countries can decide whether or not to obey.

If the main goal for G8 is to discuss world economic issues and policy regulation whiuch are not obligatory,why do they after all.
There are countries violating human rights and dignity how those issues dealt with in a global perspective

Society at the grass level expect the elected leaders to represent the voiceless and come with security and protective not forgetting measures for the disadvantaged and less priviledged.
