The Governance and Sustainability Issue Brief Series, produced by the Center for Governance and Sustainability at the University of Massachusetts Boston, is a peer-reviewed policy paper series. The issue briefs provide analytical input for contemporary political discussions on institutional reform for environmental governance and sustainable development. An Editorial Board comprised of academics and policymakers provides guidance for topics, ensures quality, and assists in the dissemination of the briefs. Each submission is peer-reviewed by one academic and one policy practitioner.
To date, the issue briefs have been read by over 350 academics and professionals, and have been presented to high level decision-makers. The first five briefs are available online. For those interested in submitting a brief for review, please send a 200 word abstract and outline to firstname.lastname@example.org. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, analytical reviews of international environmental organizations, environmental governance reform, analyses of multilateral environmental agreements, and sustainability policies.
