The 13th G20 summit is taking place in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 30 November to 1 December 2018. The G20 is the central forum for international cooperation on financial and economics issues. A team of policy analysts from the University of Sheffield have attended this year's G20. Keep up to date with their blogs and policy briefs on Global Policy.
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.
This special issue of Global Policy examines the role of domestic and international institutions in the study of global value chains. The contributions underscore that the politics engendered by global value chains, as well as how they evolve, can only be fully understood by paying attention to the contexts in which they are embedded.
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.
