Rowman & Littlefield International, Studies in Social and Global Justice
Studies in Social and Global Justice are interdisciplinary texts which interrogate that most fundamental question facing us as (global) citizens: how should we live? Books in the series examine various issues of social and global justice from different disciplinary starting places – political theory, critical political economy, international theory, the study of social movements – but always with a view to crossing disciplinary boundaries.
Studies in Social and Global Justice also problematize the dualisms between the academy and activism, universities and the local communities in which they are situated, and between Global North and Global South. Studies deal with some of the major issues in the world today, such as human rights, global ethics, protest and resistance, labour and precarity, identity politics, migration and climate change. CSSGJ has strong links with various activist and non-academic organisations (for instance, John Hilary, director of the NGO War on Want, is a fellow of the centre), so the books published appeal to non-academic stakeholders.
The book series was created in 2014 and is edited by Ben Holland and Tony Burns, both fellows of CSSGJ.
The first volume in the series, co-edited by Andreas Bieler, one of the centre directors, is titled Labour and Transnational Action in Times of Crisis and is published in July 2015. The second volume in the series, Janne Mende’s A Human Right to Culture and Identity, was published in June 2016.
The third volume, Exploitation, was released in February 2017.
