Global Governance: A Review of Multilateralism and International Organizations

OEF hosts Global Governance, a quarterly academic journal published by Lynne Reinner Publishers in association with the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS). Global Governance is intended to serve as a resource for researchers, students and practitioners interested in governance questions, and the journal's hosts welcome articles challenging conventional wisdom, whether written by scholars or practitioners. The journal engages questions surrounding problems and promises of global governance, such as how different sectors and actors can develop solutions to shared problems in the absence of a global government.
