Key Issues in Social Justice

Series Editors: Kalwant Bhopal, University of Birmingham, Martin Myers, University of Nottingham, Karl Kitching, University College Cork and Kenzo Sung, Rowan University

This new book series critically explores how issues of social justice, inclusion and equity shape modern day society. The series does so by delivering a forum for perspectives from historically marginalised and minoritised communities to challenge contemporary dominant discourses about social justice, inclusion and equity in the social sciences and aligned disciplines.

The titles in the series will be accessible monographs which will publish on broad topics, underpinned by research and theory, written clearly and accessibly. They will be topical and published first in hardback for libraries and then in paperback in order to reach a wide market such as academics, students, policy makers, practitioners and activists.
