Global Policy: Next Generation is an annual issue from Global Policy and is funded by the Global Policy Institute. The Institute is hosted in the School of Government and International Affairs and is a joint venture with the Durham Law School. 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 fourth issue of Global Policy: Next Generation focuses on the agents and processes that run the institutions—and in some cases build the new institutions—structuring bulwarks against the multiple overlapping challenges of the twenty-first century. They include articles how on experts working on the SDGs manage the boundaries between science and politics; subnational actors' role in shaping the creation of the International Renewable Energy Agency; and the post-war outcomes for Ukraine tackling corruption. There is also a special memoriam section dedicated to Dr. Nathan Sears, an emerging scholar who had already fundamentally shaped the field of existential risk and who published one of the most impactful articles in GPNG's history.
