CFP: “Global Justice: Radical Perspectives”
Special Issue of Global Justice: Theory, Practice, Rhetoric
Edited by Maeve McKeown (Frankfurt) and Alasia Nuti (Cambridge)

This is an unfortunate state of affairs, as boycotting as a form of moral and political action raises a range of important ethical issues, including:
