The first issue of EARTH SYSTEM GOVERNANCE is now available online

The Earth System Governance Project is proud to announce the availability of the first issue of the peer-reviewed Earth System Governance Journal.

The journal Earth System Governance addresses governance processes and institutions at all levels of decision-making – from local to global – within a planetary perspective that seeks to align our current institutions and governance systems with the fundamental 21st century challenges of global environmental change and earth-system transformation. The journal intends to be interdisciplinary with a firm grounding in the social sciences and humanities, and covers research on all regions and sectors.

The journal is a flagship publication of the global Earth System Governance research alliance, and is available to publish cutting-edge research presented at the annual Earth System Governance conferences, academic workshops, synthesising events by the Earth System Governance research taskforces, and similar activities. The journal welcomes original Research Articles as well as engaging Policy Perspectives, provocative Commentaries, longer Review Articles, and concise conference reports from the Earth System Governance community.
