gpol.v12.2.cover_.pngGlobal Policy: Next Generation is an annual issue from Global Policy. This multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed publication provides a platform for graduate and early career researchers to publish research on-par with the most rigorous of academic journals. We seek out the next generation of groundbreaking research in global policymaking and broaden horizons in terms of both content and authorship.

The second edition of GPNG is centred around the idea of governance or the lack thereof in the global sphere. It is a theme that speaks to the time that we live in, and the intense challenges the world order has experienced in the twenty-first century. Through it all, GPNG demonstrates the importance of providing a platform for early career research and a way to bridge the divide between academia and global policymakers.
