Gottfried Schweiger (Salzburg) and Johannes Drerup (Koblenz-Landau) will edit a Special Issue on "Global Justice for Children" in the Journal of Global Ethics. See the call for papers below.
Submission of Abstracts (500 words): 1 June 2018
Submission of Full Papers: 1 December 2018
Direct enquiries and submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The editors look for contributions that will deepen and broaden the understanding of the current situation of children globally, of the injustices they face and of how they cope with them. Contributions could also further advance ongoing debates on the moral and justice-based entitlements of children and their rights (and also duties) on a global scale. The editors also welcome papers that analyze and scrutinize the responsibilities of actors and agents of global justice for children, and that help to devise policies to improve children’s lives.
The editors hope to attract contributions from different theoretical approaches and backgrounds, especially including those outside of the mainstream of theories of global justice. Of particular interest are contributions that look into the intersection of disadvantages and injustices in children‘s lives based on their gender and sex, race, ethnicity, indigeneity or health status. Contributions from scholars based in the Global South are particularly encouraged.
