Call for Papers: Journal of Law, Social Justice and Global Development

The Journal of Law, Social Justice and Global Development – based in the Global Research Priority in International Development, University of Warwick, UK – is an international, peer reviewed, multidisciplinary open source journal. The journal is supported by an international Advisory Board and has historically carried articles which cover a range of perspectives and approaches, with a particular focus on encouraging scholars from the Global South to submit papers for review. 

The journal welcomes commentaries, reports on contemporary developments or recent conferences, case summaries and analyses, and book reviews. The journal is committed to diversity in disciplinary, theoretical and regional-cultural backgrounds and especially welcomes contributions from scholars and practitioners (e.g. teachers or activists) based in the global South and transitional economies. An example of past themes and topics include: gender and globalisation, domestic violence, migration and refugee rights, role and funding of NGOs, legal discourse around displacement, reproductive health, politics and ethics of public health, reports on tribunals and World Bank meetings, human trafficking, child labour, education, neoliberal economic globalization and development and culture.

The journal is making a call for papers for its next general issue. Following on from the two special issues due to be published imminently, we are now in the position to accept abstracts on any topic within the journal’s remit. These are wide in ambit, and we encourage multi-disciplinary collaborative papers as well as single authored papers.

Abstracts of 250-500 words and a short bibliography to be submitted in the first instance, by 15 June 2018 to the journal’s Editors in Chief:

Dr Rajnaara Akhtar: rajnaara.akhtar[at]

Dr Jonathan Vickery: J.P.Vickery[at]

Full papers of between 5,000 – 8,000 words will be invited for submission (and peer-review) by 30 September 2018.
