Global Public Policy and Governance


About the Journal

Global Public Policy and Governance (GPPG)  promotes multidisciplinary research to reflect on how increasing global interdependence has shaped public policy and governance in its values, structures, dynamics, and consequences, and vice versa.

The journal welcomes organizational, administrative, managerial, and policy-based research that explores public sector reforms and developments in an increasingly globalized world.   

The scope of GPPG covers comparative public policy and governance, domestic public policy and governance with global relevance, public policy diffusion across national borders, and regional/global policy and governance. Publications in GPPG are not limited by areas of public policy and preference is given to topics of widespread significance.

GPPG encourages innovative public administration research that breaks through current theoretical paradigms embedded in sovereignty boundaries.
