Global Solutions Papers
Global Solutions Papers contain recommendations or visions for policymakers that deal with major global challenges.
Recommendations are concrete proposals for policies or actions that policymakers can implement. Visions help policymakers think about appropriate ways to approach policymaking and enable policymakers to communicate these approaches to the public.
The articles are research-based and are written in non-technical language appropriate for a broad spectrum of readers, including economic decision-makers and participants in economic policy discussion.
Global Solutions Papers are reviewed only by an e-journal´s co-editor and/or by one outside reviewer at the editor’s discretion. Apart from this, they undergo the regular open peer review process as all papers in the e-journal.
