A leading point of reference for scholars of Southern Europe, South European Society and Politics promotes both comparative and inter-disciplinary analyses, as well as offering innovative single county and sub-national studies. The journal acts as a forum for social, economic, cultural, contemporary historical and political approaches to research on the region, and is particularly keen to sponsor policy–focused studies in all these disciplines.
The journal publishes research articles; South European Atlas with election reports and articles on other subjects of topical interest, and an extensive book reviews section, including both review articles and individual book reviews.
South European Society and Politics covers both "old" and "new" Southern Europe, focusing on Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Turkey. It is open to scholars working in any of the major social science disciplines – notably, political science, political economy, sociology, social policy, social anthropology and socio-legal studies – as well as to those working in the field of contemporary history. Published four times a year, South European Society and Politics also invites distinguished guest editors to oversee special issues.
