The November 2018 issue of Global Policy has a Special Section on 'Climate Governance After Paris', edited by David Held and Charles Roger. There are Research Articles on trade agreements, the EU's conflict minerals regulations and climate change tipping points. There are Survey Articles on the Paris agreement, and the BRICS and new development banks, and a Review Essay on private security providers in Africa.
The UK has voluntarily subscribed to a number of international treaties that say that everyone living in the country is entitled to the right to adequate housing, the right to health, the right to social security and other socio-economic rights. But unlike other countries, by and large these rights have not been incorporated in domestic law. The University of Newcastle have launched a consultation on an Economic, Social and Cultural Rights Bill that they've developed together with colleagues from other universities and from civil society.
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.
