Call for submissions: Elgar Studies in Law, Development and Global Justice

Call for submissions: Elgar Studies in Law, Development and Global Justice

The series editors, John Harrington, Celine Tan and Wouter Vandenhole (from LDRN partner institutions Cardiff University, University of Warwick, and University of Antwerp respectively)  welcome submissions to the Elgar Studies in Law, Development and Global Justice book series.

This series explores the relationship between law, development and global justice. It provides a platform for critical engagement with and interdisciplinary perspectives on the role and impact of law, defined in its broadest and most pluralistic sense, on economic development and social and political organisation. The series seeks contributions animated by a concern with global, social and gender justice, broadly understood, and welcomes both theoretically and empirically informed approaches to these issues. The series particularly welcomes contributions focused on and originating from the global south. Proposals are sought across the wide range of substantive legal areas, such as international trade and investment law, intellectual property law, international development law, environmental law, human rights, gender and the law, constitutional law, health law, housing and land law, and strategic and public interest litigation. It also seeks innovative work on the pedagogy and methodologies of law and development.

The series aims to bring scholarship on and from the global south to the widest possible audience, and the publisher is committed to ensuring the widest possible access. In particular, books are included in two schemes which provide free or low-cost access to libraries in developing countries.

Please see the website of the Elgar Studies in Law, Development and Global Justice for further details.
