Journal/Call for Papers Description

Global Policy: Next Generation is looking for papers for our third edition.

Global Policy: Next Generation is designed to broaden horizons in terms of both content and authorship. We wish to publish work that pushes beyond the predominant Western-centric viewpoints in global policymaking and broadens the scope of policy research to include both macro and micro levels of global governance structures. In doing so, GPNG lays down a challenge to early career researchers around the globe to meet this need for innovative and transformational research ideas that have both theoretical value and practical impact on policymakers.

The editorial team is seeking work across a broad field of research interests. Our aim is not to produce thematic issues, but rather 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. We seek to bring to the fore ideas and research that are at the leading edge of policy work regarding issues that are multilevel – local and global, and micro and macro in size and impact. Importantly then, as an editorial team, we place no restrictions upon the content of submissions other than their relevance and impact on current and future policy issues worldwide.

If you would be interested in submitting an article for GPNG, please send a 500-word abstract on the research article and a two-page CV to

In your abstract please consider the following questions:

1. What is your main argument? Are your conclusions clearly stated?

2. What original contribution/s are you making to the field?  Why are these contributions important?

3. What methodology are you using? What is your theoretical and empirical evidence?

4. What policy insights does your piece provide?
