Globalization + Development

The Journal of Globalization and Development (JGD) publishes academic research and policy analysis on globalization, development and the complex interactions between them. The journal is dedicated to stimulating a creative dialogue between theoretical advances and rigorous empirical studies to push forward the frontiers of development analysis. It also seeks to combine innovative academic insights with the in-depth knowledge of practitioners to address important policy issues. JGD encourages diverse perspectives on all aspects of development and globalization, and attempts to integrate the best development research from across different fields with contributions from scholars in developing and developed countries. Key topics of the journal span economic development, financial investments, development aid, development policies, growth models and sovereign debt.

The journal is edited by Kevin P. Gallagher, Director of the Boston University Global Development Policy Center; Jeronim Capaldo, Non-Resident Senior Research Scholar with the Global Economic Governance Initiative at the Boston University Global Development Policy Center, and Joseph E. Stiglitz, Arjun Jayadev, José Antonio Ocampo and Dani Rodrik.
