An event such as the G7 requires precise and meticulous preparation in advance and involves the regalian dimensions linked in particular to public order, surveillance and the deployment of large-scale public resources and international coordination between security forces. We will discuss all of these recurring elements for this type of major event in order to highlight the conditions and factors for success. In addition to the event itself and its results, the whole process of producing these events is examined.

The G7 summit in Biarritz in 2019 is considered to be a successful event. What are the fators used for this qualification? How are the indicators of success measured? What are the perceptions of the participants? Can it be considered a model to follow? In terms of public security, there were no outbursts as we have seen in a number of previous similar events.

The counter-summit was also able to take place without major disorder.
