Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Submissions
Name der Publikation: Philosophy and Poverty
The aim of this series is to provide a forum for the whole range of philosophical research on poverty. This series is neither restricted to a certain understanding of poverty, nor does it follow a certain approach within philosophy. It is also not restricted to normative questions of ethics or justice or human rights. Most philosophical work on poverty tries to answer such questions – e.g. in what respect poverty is unjust? What rich people or states owe the poor? Or what a just global order should look like – and they will have a prominent place in this series, but we are also interested in interrogations of how poverty is measured, and how it is tackled or alleviated through different policies, development aid or social services.
This series will cover high quality and thoroughly drafted edited volumes and research monographs. All books in the series will undergo rigorous peer review, and it is expected that they should excel in quality, novelty and actuality. Both systematic as well as historical approaches are welcome. Possible topics (this list is not exclusive) include: global and social justice and poverty; the conceptualisation of poverty; ethical issues in poverty alleviation; philosophical interrogations of poverty policies, social services and development aid; poverty in the history of philosophy; the relation of poverty to gender, age, race and disability; feminist, critical, radical and postcolonial perspectives on poverty.
