Global Solutions Papers

Global Solutions Papers contain recommendations or visions for policy makers that deal with major global challenges. Recommendations are concrete proposals for policies or actions that policy makers can implement. Visions help policy makers think about appropriate ways of thinking about and approaching policy making and enable policy makers to communicate these approaches to the public. 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.

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.
