About the Paper

For its Spring 2021 issue (Volume 12, Issue 1), the Jindal Global Law Review(JGLR) invites contributions that explore the legal, political, social, cultural, historical, and philosophical questions attending to the entangled relationships between bodies, borders, and displacement that animate the crisis of citizenship today.

As a law review with a critical and inter-disciplinary orientation, they welcome contributions across disciplines, jurisdictions, and forms, with a particular interest in academic works that critically examine current events with historical traction.

They are also very interested in contributions that are not jurisdiction-specific but explore questions of citizenship and displacement at a comparative or a conceptual level. Along with full-length academic articles, they welcome other forms such as case-notes, book reviews, review essays, long-form interviews, and field reports.
