In response to the ongoing dialog regarding systemic racism, law enforcement reform, and social justice movements, we at SSRN have created a Race & Social Inequity research page and eJournal. Here, our subject matter experts have curated a view into early-stage research from fields of study such as anthropology, criminal justice, law, philosophy, and political science that we hope will provide insights and bring about lasting change. We hope you take some time to peruse the thought-provoking papers showcased on this hub.

Description: This area includes content from SSRN's Race & Social Inequity hub, which highlights early-stage research related to systemic racism, racial violence, law enforcement reform, and social justice movements. This eJournal presents curated insights from many disciplines that might inform the ongoing conversation about race and culture that was triggered by the murder of George Floyd and subsequent global protests. It is our hope that these insights from fields of study such as criminal justice, anthropology, political science, and philosophy will help eradicate racism and bring about lasting change. It is important to note that these papers have not been edited or benefited from the pivotal role of peer-review, which validates and improves the quality of final published journal articles.
