New Journal - 'Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric'

The Global Justice Network has launched a new online journal, see CFP below...

*Call for Contributions -- Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric*

The first issue of 'Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric' is now out and available for free at http://www.theglobaljusticenetwork.org/. The journal is also accepting submissions for its next issue to appear in January 2009.
The journal welcomes contributions on the many theoretical, empirical, and rhetorical aspects of global justice, including:
- The history and work of international institutions - their success, failures, and possible reforms.
- Normative theories of international and global justice - their strengths, weaknesses, and potential application.
- How to produce change in policies, behaviour and attitudes of relevant institutions, organisations and people.
We are especially interested in interdisciplinary research, bringing together empirical studies, practical experience, and normative analysis.

Contributions to the first issue include:

Thomas Pogge, 'Could Globalisation be Good for World Health?'
Daniel Tarantola, 'Global Justice and Human Rights: Health and Human Rights in Practice'
Julia Skorupska, 'Rhetoric and Global Justice'
Ayelet Banai, 'The Liberal Difference: Left and Right Conceptions of Global Injustice'
Christian Schemmel, 'On the Usefulness of Luck Egalitarian Arguments for Global Justice'
Miriam Ronzoni, 'Two Concepts of the Basic Structure, and their Relevance to Global Justice'

*Further Details*
'Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric' is an online journal published by The Global Justice Network, a forum created to promote exchange across different academic disciplines working on global justice, and to disseminate research and knowledge to the wider public. To advance these goals, we publish both original work and shorter syntheses of longer, more technical work. Articles should ideally be between 3000 and 6000 words, and must be presented in an accessible manner. Submissions will be selected for publication through peer-review and according to relevance. Deadline for submissions: June 30, 2008. Papers should be emailed to info@theglobaljusticenetwork.org For further details, please consult the 'Guidelines for manuscripts'.
