The November 2013 edition of Global Policy contains two special sections. The first, ‘International Animal Protection’, edited by Alasdair Cochrane, examines the scope for improving international legal protections for animal welfare. While the second, 'Globalising Justice: A Multidimensional Approach', edited by Valentina Gentile, contains articles dealing with diversity in the search for global justice, including the role of Sharia, Human Rights discourse, colonialism and the ongoing poverty debate. Alongside a review essay on conflict minerals in the DRC, the issue also contains research articles on identity and war, diplomacy over the Arctic and Islamic feminism.
