An announcement from the editors of PoLAR:
LEADING LAW and SOCIAL SCIENCE JOURNAL moved from Cornell to Wisconsin!
No, not JELS – PoLAR: Political and Legal Anthropology Review, the leading journal of political and legal anthropology in the United States, which moved its editorial office to the University of Wisconsin Law School from Cornell in recent years.
The latest research on law and politics around the world, giving you in-depth analyses of developments from the ground level. How do changing political and legal contexts affect indigenous peoples? What happens when global law hits the ground? Are regulatory approaches inspired by Western democracies readily adapted to other settings?
Read about the surprising effects of “environmental impact assessments” in Peru, about subtle connections between the government and drug traffickers in Brazil, or about how the World Bank and IMF indirectly changed the government of Malawi.
Catch PoLAR’s NOVEMBER 2010 issue on NGOs around the world and the companion Virtual Issue on NGOs, available on PoLAR’s website:
PoLAR also features OPEN ACCESS original on-line content on topics such as the ethnographic study of trials, the anthropological study of crime, the legal issues facing Native Americans – with interviews of leading anthropologists.
