The Global Solutions Initiative’s publications reflect important issues and research areas of the G20 and G7 work agenda that are of special interest to G20 and G7 policymakers.

The Global Solutions Journals provide a bridge between visions, recommendations and action. The Journals are released at the annual Global Solutions Summit and at official Think20 (T20) and Think7 events. You can find articles from academics as well as from authors who are working on implementing ideas, be it in the political, economic, business or civil society sector in Global Solutions Journals.

The Young Global Changes Publications complies assessments, recommendations, proposals, and specific approaches aimed at addressing ongoing decoupling processes. It addresses the importance of a better inclusion of youth and upcoming generations in the decision-making process. It provides ideas and analysis on how to address pressing global issues and presents concrete projects and initiatives that aim for more and better “recoupling” of social and economic prosperity.

The Young Global Changers blog allows all participants of the Young Global Changers program to connect with one another and present the important work they are doing as part of the global Young Global Changers network. Here Young Global Changers can publish reports, proposals and commentaries on important global issues.

The Global Initiative for Digital Empowerment (GIDE) is a self-selecting international group of researchers, policy experts, civil society advocates, Internet technical and security experts and businesspeople. They seek to bring new practical policy solutions and diverse international partners to ensure that the rules of the digital economy are more directed to the broad interests of humans, not just businesses and governments. The GIDE mission is to progress a model of digital governance devoted to human welfare through practically deliverable policy suggestions for pivotal policy makers.

The GIDE membership has been fortunate to have two homes. The members of GIDE are the core of the Digital Governance Program at THE NEW INSTITUTE.  The Global Solutions Initiative has supported online meetings of the GIDE members. It is the key avenue for promoting GIDE work to the organs of the Group of 7 and Group of 20.

This report emerged from nearly two years of research and discussion by the evolving membership of GIDE.

INTERSECTING cuts through strategic policy areas from developed and emerging countries. It builds upon multi-sectoral, multi-disciplinary, and multi-stakeholder approaches.

INTERSECTING has been launched by the Global Solutions Initiative and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and is distributed by the Global Solutions Initiative. It is geared towards think tanks, civil organizations, international institutions, in particular the G20/T20. It addresses established and future generations of leaders in public and private spheres.

G20 Insights publishes the latest research-based Policy Briefs addressing G20 issues throughout the year. It serves as a repository for Think20 (T20) Policy Briefs generated under G20 Presidencies over the years but also welcomes Policy Briefs that were written outside the T20 process. Policy Briefs can take two forms: 
(1) Recommendations are significant, implementable policy proposals for specified G20 decision-makers or related international fora.
(2) Visions are conceptual frameworks to help policymakers develop promising approaches to policy formation and communicate these approaches to the public.

Global Solutions Papers contain recommendations or visions for policymakers that deal with major global challenges. The articles are research-based and are written in nontechnical language appropriate for a broad spectrum of readers, including economic decision-makers and participants in economic policy discussion.

The Social Macroeconomics working paper series aims to understand the role of human sociality within macroeconomic activity. 

Contributions to the series involve interdisciplinary research, bridging economics, social psychology, social neuroscience, sociology, anthropology, evolutionary biology and more.

Global Solutions Initiative President Dennis J. Snower is responsible for the publications as co-director of the Social Macroeconomics program of the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford together with Sir Paul Collier, Professor of Economics and Public Policy.

Commentaries and articles are written by members of the Global Solution Initiative’s Executive Committee or members of the Global Solutions Initiative’s core community and are frequently picked up in the global media.

The Solution Sessions bring together decision-makers from policy-making, business and civil society to debate policy responses to major global problems and present or discuss recommendations in the form of panel discussions, keynotes or vision statements.
