Information Page

Research in Biopolitics (RB) examines the links between the life sciences and politics. It draws on a diverse range of biological areas, including: human ethology; socio-biology; ethology; genetics; evolutionary theory; neurosciences; biotechnology, and bioethics.  The series focuses on the relationship between biology and politics and builds on what is already known in the biological sciences to help provide answers to long standing questions regarding power, politics, political behaviour, and governance. The international array of papers and discussions in this series are used to illuminate and inform policy choices (biopolicy), political behaviour, leadership behaviour, international politics and political philosophy.

Research in Biopolitics has considerable potential to advance and transform the discipline of political science. As the only book series that focuses specifically on the relationship between biology and politics, the series is unique in revealing current research trends and keeping readers up-to-date on what is at the forefront of biology and politics.

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