The February 2013 edition of Global Policy contains two special sections.

The second, edited by Andreas Klasen, examines 'Export Credit Availability and Global Trade'. It includes analysis of export credit in BRICS countries and its availability during the Euro debt crisis. The issue also contains articles on existential risk, climate change, the legitimacy of the G20 and China’s growing global influence.
