Global Policy: Next Generation, a new, annual fifth-edition of Global Policy is commissioning papers. The aim is to seek out the next generation of groundbreaking research in global policymaking from early career researchers. The issue will not be thematic. Instead, it hopes to stimulate cross-cutting debates around a range of global policy and collective action issues, from the environment and health to global poverty and security and beyond. Accordingly, we place no restrictions upon the content of submissions.
The contributors to this volume explore the policies and priorities of GCC states, the tensions within and across the organisation, and behavioural traits of its key actors. Several also pay close attention to the GCC’s interactions with the wider region and in particular such countries as Iran and Turkey.
I would like to commend you for taking this important initiative. The world badly needs innovative solutions, involving both the public and private sector, to a wide range of pressing global challenges. To that end, a journal that brings together the world of academics and practitioners is most welcome.
