The IPC-IG launches a Call for Articles for the next issue of its Policy in Focus magazine
Brasília, 12 July, 2017 -The International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) has launched a Call for Articles for the next issue of its flagship publication, the Policy in Focus magazine, to be published by November 2017, which will explore how non-contributory social protection is changing in countries in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA). This publication will be led by specialist guest editors Rafael Guerreiro Osorio and Fabio Veras Soares.
The issue will be tentatively titled ‘Social protection in MENA today’. The IPC-IG would like to invite potential contributors (scholars, policymakers and policy practitioners) to send an expression of interest proposal by email to, with the subject line “PIF MENA article proposal”, by no later than 28 July 2017. Proposals must briefly detail the scope of the proposed articles, co-authors (if any), and institutional affiliation. The final article submissions should be presented in English and are expected to be under 2,000 words, fully referenced. 
Proposals will be examined by the Centre’s editorial board regarding their alignment with the issue’s Concept Note. Selected authors will receive an individual notification confirming the acceptance of their articles, along with full guidelines for article submission. The final deadline for article submission is 21 August 2017. Read the full Concept Note here
