Cosmopolitan Civil Societies: An Interdisciplinary Journal is concerned with developing a better understanding of social change and cultural cohesion in cosmopolitan societies. Its focus lies at the intersection of conflict and cohesion, and in how division can be transformed into dialogue, recognition and inclusion. The Journal takes a grounded approach to cosmopolitanism, linking it to civil society studies. It opens up debate about cosmopolitan engagement in civil societies, addressing a range of sites: social movements and collective action; migration, cultural diversity and responses to racism; the promotion of human rights and social justice; initiatives to strengthen civil societies; the impact of ‘information society’ and the context of environmental change.

This journal does not charge any type of article processing charge (APC) or any type of article submission charge.

CfP Urban Art and Cosmopolitanism Special Issue


In this special issue on urban art and cosmopolitanism we aim to explore emergent inquiry and explorations into the role of arts, artists and the reception of arts in the urban public space as cosmopolitan articulations, interventions and methodologies. Deadline for Abstracts to 30 August 2021. 

Vol 13 No 2

This special issue of Cosmopolitan Civil Societies addresses the question of how individuals, communities or  countries have released new dynamics of sociality and social solidarity as well as new marginalisations as they face Covid-19. It raises the importance of the local, while hinting at new forms of globalisation. The papers published here give insights into the situations and concerns in countries not often presented together. We acknowledge the important work being done by the authors of these papers and by others concerned with these significant issues.
