New series: G20 Policy Papers

The new series “G20 Policy Papers” is open for papers which contain recommendations or visions for G20 decision makers.

In light of our proliferating global problems, multilateral decision making is more important than ever. But cooperation across national and cultural lines is under threat. "G20 Policy Papers" focus on all major topics on the G20 agendas or topics that should be considered by the G20. Papers must be based on research results, but written in a nontechnical language to address readers from policy making backgrounds. With this new series we would like to encourage an open dialogue on G20 policies based on scientific insights. We invite submissions as of now.


New special issue open for submissions: The economics of social status
