Global Policy: Next Generation is a new 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. The aim is to seek out the next generation of groundbreaking research in global policymaking and broaden horizons in terms of both content and authorship.
The first edition of GPNG covers a range of pressing topics, including the importance of reframing how policymakers perceive global existential risk, and the fourth industrial revolution, the modernisation of diplomatic practice and international peacekeeping, and the future of foreign direct investment. 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.
