The current world is characterized by increasing socioeconomic inequality unfolding in the midst of a pandemic, the threat of another world war, along with energy and environmental crises, human rights violations, the growing pervasiveness of far-right wing repertoire, and uncertainty and existential challenges. This alternating reality has led to resistance from the global, regional and local peripheries of the world to promote social movements, grassroots communities, and a growing alliance among historically discriminated people. In their struggle against many forms of social inequality and human rights violations, these peripheries have made creative use of the Internet, among other resources, to find new forms of resistance against oppression and to promote the fight for freedom.
While studies document new forms of inequalities in the U.S. and in Latin America, seldom do these works employ interdisciplinary frameworks including the role of technology and social innovation in documenting the structural factors and social mechanisms that have given rise to a populist far-right movement, and the reproduction of human rights violations and oppression which today more than ever impact historically excluded and racialized minorities.
This special “Social Sciences” edition makes a call for papers contributing to these emerging debates through the use of interdisciplinary and multidimensional approaches. We invite the collaboration of researchers interested in new forms of social, ethnic, and racial injustices as well as strategies of resistance. This special edition strongly invites papers that combine academic rigor and a normative engagement with equality, social justice, minority rights, inclusion and democracy.
