This issue also includes three book reviews.
The principal purpose of RoSS is to publish lucid and well-documented peer-reviewed articles that discuss significant social, legal and political issues in an international context.
Wide-ranging in scope, the journal welcomes scholarly essays that cut across disciplinary boundaries, and reflect original and critical thinking on the latest developments in the theory and practice of social sciences. These areas include, but are not limited to, the fields of anthropology, sociology, law, politics, history, international relations, culture, gender, migration, diaspora and ethnic studies. RoSS publishes two issues a year (spring and autumn). The journal also contains a book review section analysing some of the most-recent academic publications within the social sciences.
The reviewers consist of well-established academics from all over the world from various social sciences disciplines, ensuring that the submitted papers are of high and publishable quality.
