Working Papers

The United Nations University Working Paper series features pre-publication drafts from UNU-affiliated authors, including academic journal articles, research reports, book chapters, and policy briefs. UNU Working Papers are meant to stimulate discussion, debate and critical feedback. Readers are encouraged to directly interact with authors by email (when provided) or via the comments section.

Working Papers are documents in various stages of completion (e.g., under submission, to be published in final form elsewhere and/or not yet peer-reviewed), and the style and format is not standardized. As such, authors have full responsibility for their working paper content, views, accuracy, and possible editorial errors.
