For over 40 years, we’ve been on a mission to publish academic work that challenges oppressive power structures and regimes. Our content encourages students and academics to consider a more global perspective on important topics.

We’re committed to internationalism and to making the knowledge production process more diverse. We want all of our publications to contribute to a more diverse and inclusive academy. That’s why every aspect of our publishing is focused on excellence in the support of equality, diversity and social justice. Our processes are designed to guide critical research and include expert legal guides, checks and support as necessary.

We also partner with world renowned institutions and societies to develop globally respected academic brands and series — further helping to distribute and promote your research.
