People

The Journal of Law, Social Justice and Global Development is a collaborative journal, published twice a year, which offers graduates and younger scholars opportunities in both editorial experience as well as publication. The Journal Editors-in-Chief are supported by the Journal Editorial Board. It maintains local oversight by the Warwick Global Research Priority in International Development, and international oversight by the prestigious Journal International Advisory Board.

Guest editors manage the special issues. These are governed by the Editorial Policy for Guest Editors, and benefit from the close oversight of the Editors or Chief and select members of the Journal Editorial Board.

A statement from the Editors in Chief

At the Journal of Law, Social Justice and Global Development we consider academic publication to be an expression of intellectual integrity and are  committed to the highest standards of research probity and rigour in method.

We view interdisciplinary research as an ethical commitment to critical thought as well as to a publicly accessible clarity of communication. We believe in knowledge as a power for global solidarity, collaboration and recognition, and that a university is a unique institution for the generation of new ideas, theories, experimentation and a central contribution to building a humane, enlightened global civil society.
