The Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS) is searching for a new editor/editorial team and host institution for the journal Global Governance: A Review of Multilateralism and International Organizations. The journal is published quarterly by Lynne Rienner Publishers.

Global Governance includes timely opinion pieces and articles on the contribution of international institutions and multilateral processes to economic development, the maintenance of peace and security, human rights, environmental sustainability, and a variety of other UN and international organization-related topics. Its focus is global not only in substance, but also in the multidisciplinary and multicultural perspectives brought to it by its authors and editorial board. It welcomes soundly analytical submissions from scholars in all of the fields that bear on issues of international public policy, as well as from practitioners who work with and within international institutions. Views that either support or challenge conventional wisdoms are equally welcome.

The editor/editorial team and host institution are expected to make a commitment of five-to-six years, with the host institution contributing significantly to the maintenance of the editorial office. (A report on the current financing and administration of the journal is available on request). To facilitate a smooth transition, it is anticipated that the new editor(s) will begin to liaise with the current editors no later than January 1, 2018, with an official start date of July 1, 2018 (Volume 24).

Application Procedure

Letters of interest or intent should be submitted by July 31, 2016, with final proposals due by September 30, 2016. It is anticipated that the decision will be made by May 1, 2017.
