Global Policy’s September 2015 issue contains, among others, articles on democracy and autonomous weapons, R2P as international policy, sustainable development and when foreign aid works. It also contains a special section on ‘Organizational Leadership and Collective Action in International Governance’, and another on ‘Private Investment and Public Funds for Climate Finance’ guest edited by Andreas Klasen.
