Editors of Policy Design and Practice invite proposals for special thematic issues to be published over the next three years. PDP articles are written for practitioners by experts based on their careful study, analysis, and experience with ongoing policy problems and governance challenges. As such, the themes must be of broad interest to both the academic and practitioner communities.
To be successful, proposals need to offer a coherent set of well-written topical articles that improve the design and practice of public policies. The papers will engage key issues on the subject relevant to the journal’s worldwide readership. Proposals may include a mixture of empirical cases and conceptual clarifications and discussions of best practices focusing on different aspects of the theme.
