Social Transformations: Journal of the Global South
Social Transformations is a journal that analyzes social movements, development paradigms, policies, and socio-political interventions in the Global South. We are interested in employing interdisciplinary methodologies to produce reflexive theorizing and commentary on contemporary social change in countries once associated with the Third World. We favor contextualized and embedded studies of interventions such as community-initiated outcome models and organized grassroots movements. Such studies trace the interrelations, both state and non-state, between various peoples and movements, while acknowledging the tensions and contradictions within the Global South. Given the history of uneven relations with the Global North and the social ills of poverty and violence in the South, we hope to generate research that addresses issues of social justice, global well being, and translocal sustainable development.
