Global Policy is pleased to announce the release of an e-book with the Observer Research Foundation: 'Iran Nuclear Deal: Implications of the Framework Agreement', edited by Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan and Arka Biswas.

In the wake of intense scrutiny from the international community, this volume consists of nine chapters that deal with various aspects of the Iranian nuclear agreement reached on 2 April 2015.

Global Policy are pleased to present six post-summit analyses from the Global Leadership Initiative's team that were on the ground in Garmisch Partenkirchen.

In each case, the team members stress the need for tangible global leadership at these summits and provide analysis examining how this is being advanced or diminished with regards to women, health, Japan, sustainable development, climate change and Ukraine.
