Governance and Sustainability Issue Brief Series
Center for Governance and Sustainability, University of Massachusetts Boston

The Center for Governance and Sustainability is looking for new submissions for its Issue Briefs series. The Issue Briefs are short, policy-oriented papers intended for use by policy makers, professionals, and academics alike. Since the series began in October 2011, the Center has published eight issue briefs and until September 2013, they have been downloaded 5,600 times. In addition, printed copies are distributed at various international policy events.

The Briefs address a variety of contemporary topics in the areas of global governance and sustainability, are analytically rigorous and written in plain language. They are peer-reviewed by both academics and policymakers. The Editorial Board welcomes contributions on any subject related to governance and sustainability and is particularly interested in new analysis of current global issues, including the MDGs, SDGs, the High-Level Political Forum, and new architecture for environment and development, among others.

To submit a proposal, please send a brief email with a 200-word abstract and an outline to [email protected] We will provide feedback and guidance within a week.
