Journal of Politics (JP) is an academic international journal published by the Cambridge Union Publishing Center. The journal is published in collaboration with the International Association for College and University Education (IACUE). The Journal is a leading general journal of political science which publishes path-breaking research in all subfields from all parts of the world.
Journal of Politics (JP) is a peer-reviewed quarterly, publishes well-researched articles that raise questions about the way the world is organized politically, economically, and socially. As an alternative, critical voice of the social sciences, JP regularly debates the theory of the state, class analysis, politics of gender, methodological individualism and rational choice, and the future of capitalism and socialism.
The Journal provides a venue for articles and reviews on issues that arise at the intersections of nations, states, civil society, and global institutions. It is concerned with the interplay of macroscopic and microscopic structures and processes including changing configurations of ethnic groups, social classes, religions, and personal networks: the impact of social transformations, including new technologies of communication and media, on the order of public and private life. The journal is drawn to theoretical ideas and their connection to substantive normative concerns and encourages disciplined creativity. It is interdisciplinary in orientation and international in scope.
JP provides a forum for discussions and debates on points of tension between state and civil society and between nations and global institutions. Historical and analytical essays as well as original research papers examine changing patterns in:
- the coordination of societal and world economic and political institutions;
- new configurations of ethnic and racial groups and communities;
- social effects of mass culture propaganda and technoscientific breakthroughs in communications; and
- the consequences of contemporary social transformations for the psyche among other timely issues.
