Brian Gran is the new editor of Societies Without Borders: Human Rights and the Social Sciences, an open-access, peer-reviewed journal published through Scholarly Commons of the Case Western Reserve University Law School. Doctoral students Margaret Waltz and Bradley Powell serve as SWB’s managing editors. SWB is the flagship journal of Sociologists Without Borders (SSF), a transnational association of sociologists committed to human rights and social justice.
The journal’s mission is to make scholarly analysis of human rights accessible to a wide audience, including readers and authors in parts of the world where censorship hinders discussion of human rights. As editor, Gran will seek to continue SWB’s tradition of publishing quality articles that offer new, crucial insights into human rights philosophy, scholarship, strategy and implementation.
