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.

Vol 15 No 1 (2023): Special Issue on New Extractivism

This Special Issue of CCS Journal investigates this phenomenon of ‘new’ extractivism, focusing on its civil society dimensions. How is civil society re-patterned by extractivism? What social technologies are being developed by extractivist corporates to enable civil society participation in their projects? What tensions or contradictions emerge in this nexus? How may these tensions, understood dialectically, generate new constituencies in civil society, lead to failed extractivist projects, and open-up the potential for wider post-extractivist futures?

The issue is co-edited by (and in alphabetical order): Professor Fidelis Allen, Professor James Goodman and Professor Armindo dos Santos de SousaTeodósio.
