About the Journal

Social Politics is the journal for incisive analyses of gender, politics and policies in an international context. The journal's mission is to stimulate cross-fertilisation in scholarship in the social sciences, with gender and intersectional perspectives to the fore. Of core interest are the restructuring of capitalisms and states as well as cultural and normative shifts, and the implications of associated changes for work, families, care, migration, politics, and development. We welcome theoretical and empirical work and endorse methodological rigour and diversity. We are especially interested in comparative analyses. We are looking for articles that engage in this exciting mix of scholarship that will be of interest to our multidisciplinary and international audience.
