Introducing Global Social Challenges Journal
How can we re-imagine society in an era of climate change, pandemic, hunger, poverty questions of racial, ethnic and gender justice and other pressing global societal challenges? Significant threats and dangers lie ahead of us, but so do opportunities. This new fully open access, not for profit journal aims to facilitate thinking about these positive new trajectories and become the journal of choice to address the complexities of global social challenges across disciplines.
The Global Social Challenges Journal will be the first such journal to be based in the social sciences, whilst engaging with research from humanities, arts and STEM. It will be an important home for research which contributes to the creation of alternative futures that are socially and environmentally just and sustaining.
