Global Platform of International Public Policies


The Global Platform on International Public Policies is a space created to connect the community interested on this subject. This is one of the results of the International Conference on Policy Diffusion and Development Cooperation, held at the Federal University of São Paulo, in May 2018. The Conference registered more than 170 participants, coming from all over the world.  In order to keep the network alive, this platform allows to share information with different material related to international public policies. Here it is possible to upload recent academic articles and books, reports, videos and podcasts. There is also a space for advertising events, create discussion forums on specific topics and webinars. Feel free to have a tour on our platform and use the material, quoting properly the authors. Hope you enjoy and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to write us at:
