British Academy Review, Issue 12, January 2009
The two leading articles in this issue address topics of current public interest - trust in our public institutions and reconciliation of long-term conflicts.
This issue also has a strong international flavour. Articles reveal both the impact of globalisation at the local level, and how local situations can defy simple global assumptions – as well as showcasing the wide range of scholarship on international subjects that is supported by the British Academy.
The whole issue may be downloaded in PDF format (2.4MB). The articles listed below in blue are also available separately in PDF format.
