Since its inception, Research in Political Sociology (RPS) has had the primary objective of publishing original, high quality manuscripts to increase our understanding of political structures and processes.

The articles in RPS are directed towards identifying, understanding, and explaining the various interrelations that exist within and between social and political phenomena. This includes exploring the underlying social roots or origins of politics and power; the organisation, management, and process of political power structure; and the effects of political decision-making and power structures on the surrounding society and culture.

Papers published in RPS are peer-reviewed. For more details about Emerald's approach to Publication Ethics; please refer to the company guidelines.

Enabling Gender Equality: Future Generations of the Global World, Vol. 23
Edited by Eunice Rodriguez (Stanford University) and Barbara Wejnert (University at Buffalo)

To challenge gender discrimination and to secure the world's prosperity and peace, we urgently need pro-girls and pro-women policies in the contemporary, globally developing world. Such policies could mark an era of building greater gender equality across the world by sheltering domains of women's well-being that are shown to decline. The desperately needed gender equality would honor women's place in the world, would greatly honor each country's political constituencies and enrich democratic institutions. This volume of Research in Political Sociology addresses a broad range of gender equality issues from women's status and opportunities at work, education, health, political participation, community involvement and global migration; from a vast domain of countries in Europe, America, Australia, Asia and Africa.
