Working Paper Series - Global Challenges

Working Paper Series - Global Challenges

This series seeks to disseminate research focused on issues such as poverty and inequality, sustainability, and other relevant global challenges.

The working paper series (WPS) is a joint effort between CROP and UiB Global and was conceived as a vehicle for scholars in our global network to swiftly disseminate their research.

Papers received are subject to peer reviewed and approved for publication by an Editorial Board. We invite our global partners to submit WP proposals to: WPS@uib.no


Open access to all papers is available through Bergen Open Research Archive (BORA) at the University of Bergen.
