OEF Third Book Workshop: Of special interest to Global South Scholars.
Request for Proposals:
The Role of Southern Regions in Norm Creation and Contestation:The African Context
The One Earth Future Foundation (OEF)and the editors of Global Governance: A Review of Multilateralism and International Organizations invite you to submit a proposal for our third book workshop. The editors of Global Governance will act as series editors and selection of the final proposal will be made together with Lynne Rienner Publishers,The Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS), and OEF. Successful candidates will be responsible for convening a workshop, supported by OEFand the United Nations University, to bring together contributors who can provide manuscripts that will speak to the year’s selected focus. The workshop will be used as a tool for identifying junior scholars and scholars from developing countries. The experience should help them to develop international contacts, expose them to the etiquettes of international publishing, and develop their skill-sets and self-confidence to submit manuscripts to the professional journals in the field—including Global Governance. The workshop will be used to refine the contributions provided and generate an overall collective structure for the eventual book.
