Policy Design and Practice

I’ve joined the Scientific Board of Policy Design and Practice, a new journal from Taylor & Francis that will begin publication in 2018. The journal is sponsored by the Asian Development Bank and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy of the National University of Singapore. Michael Howlett and M Ramesh will co-edit the journal. I’ll post more information along the way about the journal.
