Brill to publish Global Governance journal with immediate effect

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, adds Global Governance: A Review of Multilateralism and International Organizations to its growing portfolio in International Relations. Founded in 1995 by Lynne Rienner Publishers, this internationally acclaimed journal provides a global forum for the discussion of relevant topics on the processes of international cooperation and multilateralism.

Marie Sheldon, Publishing Director at Brill | Nijhoff, comments: “Global Governance is a wonderful addition to our extensive program in International Relations. We are delighted to work closely with the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS), who have provided excellent leadership for the journal since its early days and continues to do so.”

Alistair Edgar, Executive Director of ACUNS remarks: “ACUNS remains deeply grateful to Lynne Rienner for her support in establishing and advancing Global Governance from its inception and through its first quarter century. We look forward now to building on this critical foundation with Brill | Nijhoff, and the editorial team, as the journal continues to build its reputation for scholarly excellence and policy relevance in the analysis of critical issues related to the United Nations, multilateralism and the challenges of global governance.”

Brill | Nijhoff is taking over publishing responsibility from Lynne Rienner Publishers with immediate effect and expects to publish the next 2018 issue (24.3) according to schedule in August. The online edition of Global Governance will soon become available on Brill’s Books and Journals platform. Learn more about the journal at
