Development, Justice and Citizenship

Description

This series responds to the urgent need to explore the multiple challenges of research International Development from the perspective of justice and citizenship Complex issues such as the global inter-connectedness of places, economies, communities, and ideas, the movement of people, the costs of increasingly intensive and extensive models of capitalist growth, the global economy of energy, finance and production, global scarcity, abundance and consumption, security, health and environmental degradation all bring with them human dilemmas that directly affect people in or from the Global South and are at the heart of current agenda for development studies. The series is inspired by the research approach of the new University of Sheffield flagship research centre; the Sheffield Institute for International Development (SIID) and the colleagues and partners SIID is working with. SIID aims, above all, to set out an agenda for international development that reflects the importance of justice, rights and citizenship for global politics, policy and practices. It seeks to stimulate research for the highest calibre around international development as a question of social, political, economic and cultural justice and global social responsibility. It will showcase theoretical and empirical studies of the multi-level struggles for justice by and ordinary people and the politics and policies that seek to give rise to a fairer and more just global society. The series seeks contributions, therefore, that reveal the multiple ways people operate and engage in forms of struggle for a better world, and that explore the ways states and international actors engage with demands for change. We welcome submissions from scholars across the globe in the form of research monographs, edited collections and shorter, polemic books (pivots) that address this agenda is a direct, scholarly and thought-provoking fashion.
