Forward features

Below you can find information about upcoming issues of Alliance including special features and guest editors.

March 2019: Systems Change

Most enduring social issues are complex and interconnected. In the philanthropy field, a growing number of foundations seek change at the level of ‘whole systems’ rather than individual projects, organisations or interventions. This special feature, guest edited by the Lankelly Chase Foundation’s Julian Corner, will share emerging approaches, methods, questions and practices to illuminate the opportunities and tensions for philanthropists and foundations.

June 2019: Peace building

War and armed conflict have become the norm in many parts of the world, causing death, spoiled lives, ruined economies and lost opportunities. Philanthropy has often played a vital roles in peace building, yet this role is not well understood. This will be Alliance magazine’s first special feature devoted to examining what philanthropy does and how. Guest edited by Rasha Sansur, Lauren Bradford and Hope Lyons.

Special features in the pipeline:

  • Human rights
  • Women and girls
