Call for Submission of Articles to Class, Race and Corporate Power.

Class, Race and Corporate Power is an open-access, online academic journal examining the politics of corporate power. This includes an analysis of capital, labor, and race relations within nation-states and the global economy. We encourage contributions that explore these issues within holistic frameworks that borrow from a range of scholarly disciplines.

He said the crisis now was not merely economic, but social, with a growing number of people being marginalised, political, with leaders unable to prescribe solutions for those mostly affected, and also cultural.
