About this Journal
The LSE Public Policy Review is an open-access, refereed journal which is published quarterly. Each issue is thematic and concentrates on a key topic at the heart of current debates in public policy. Public policy challenges bring to the fore cross-cutting questions which require a global perspective and a focus on their interconnectedness. Because of this, articles in each issue take different disciplinary perspectives, encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration and analysis at the forefront of current thinking. As a result, each issue presents a comprehensive approach to the specific theme and an analysis that is academically rigorous but also readily accessible to all readers. The LSEPPR publishes original research papers, conceptual articles, review papers written for a general readership, in non-technical language aimed at a wide audience including government, business and policy-makers, as well as academics and students. LSEPPR seeks to actively contribute to the study and development of public and social policy, public administration and public management.
