The Public Sphere Journal is the London School of Economics and Political Science’s largest international policy studies journal. It is produced by postgraduate students at the School of Public Policy (SPP). The Public Sphere Journal, now in its seventh year, publishes evidence-based research in economic policy, public management, international affairs, development studies and social policy. The journal offers contributors and readers an active space to rethink, critically analyse and address important policy problems.
