John Harrington (Cardiff University), Celine Tan (University of Warwick) and Wouter Vandenhole (University of Antwerp) – founding members of the Law and Development Research Network – are co-editing a new book series on Law, Development and Global Justice in collaboration with Edward Elgar Publishing.
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.
