Civil Society and Social Change series

Series Editors: Ian Rees Jones, Cardiff University, Mike Woods, Aberystwyth University and Paul Chaney, Cardiff University

This series provides interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives on the rapidly changing nature of civil society at local, regional, national and global scales.

The series will comprise a core set of edited volumes reporting on research findings from across the Wales Institute of Social & Economic Research, Data & Methods (WISERD) Civil Society Research Centre, and the editors also welcome additional contributions. They are particularly interested in interdisciplinary volumes that expand on the series themes:

  • Locality, community and civil society
  • Individuals, institutions and governance
  • Economic austerity, social enterprise and inequality
  • Generation, life course and social participation


Selected titles in the series available open access.
