Message from the Editors
NATALJA MORTENSEN & JENNIFER KNERR
As COVID-19 and social justice protests continue to upend everyday life in the US and around the world, the topics investigated by political scientists have never felt more pertinent. Indeed, the themes of the American Political Science Association’s 2020 Annual Convention are truly prescient: “Democracy, Difference, and Destabilization.” We are all working hard to understand and to demonstrate the connections between and among these themes and the state of the world today. Here at Routledge, we are dedicated to publishing leading edge research and quality textbooks that bring people together and challenge us to think critically about local and global efforts to effect positive change.
As we move forward into new terrain, we know that our authors will continue to ask the tough questions about what the next chapter in our diverse political story should look like. It is a privilege to help them to do so. If you have a new book idea that you would like to be considered for inclusion in the Routledge Politics and International Relations publishing program, please contact any of our outstanding editors.
We are now offering free-to-view scholarship supporting the fight against racism and inequality
We have curated some of our relevant books and journals content in this area – much of it free to view or open access – and our editorial teams will continue to collaborate with scholars and experts to organize and publish an expanded reading list on this microsite. In parallel, our education team have developed Educating for Black Lives which brings together readings and resources to support and inspire those who want to implement antiracist strategies across a variety of education settings and stages.
