Two Ontario law professors are part of a team of scholars that is launching a journal on the intersection between international law and the “Global South.”

Sujith Xavier, associate professor at the University of Windsor Faculty of Law, and Amar Bhatia, associate professor at Osgoode Hall Law School, are part of the editorial collective of the Third World Approaches to International Law Review. The journal is scheduled to publish its inaugural issue in Spring 2020, but it will post content on its website year-round, according to an announcement.

The journal’s contents include reflective essays on various issues, interviews with scholars and legal practitioners, and non-traditional pieces, such as art and fiction.

Xavier highlighted several pieces that have been published online, dealing with refugees, Islamophobia, environmental justice, and a project that seeks to rethink the legal education system in Latin America.

The other members of the journal’s editorial collective are: Laura Betancur Restrepo of Universidad de Los Andes, Usha Natarajan of the American University in Cairo, John Reynolds of the National University of Ireland, Maynooth and Ntina Tzouvala of the University of Melbourne.
