The Development and Peace Foundation (sef:) and the Institute for Development and Peace (INEF) are launching a new publications series: GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS. The new series aims to identify options for international policy action in an ever more complex world. Furthermore, it presents perspectives from different world regions. The series analyses current developments and challenges against the background of long-term political trends, and it illustrates facts with figures and tables. It thus follows on from GLOBAL TRENDS, published from 1991 to 2015.
The series stands out for its openness to perspectives from different world regions. This is reflected in its international editorial team, which includes renowned academics and practitioners from Brazil, China, India, Lebanon and South Africa. We are very pleased that they have kindly agreed to contribute.
