The Social Sciences at Brill

 

The Social Sciences at Brill are central to our mission of publishing superior scholarship that addresses the complex needs and struggles of the ever-changing political and cultural landscape of a globalized world.

Anchored in well-established critical and comparative publications, the Social Sciences at Brill are experiencing dynamic expansion and diversification by reason of our three core principles for achieving enduring growth in ways that are uniquely relevant to the 21st century: 1) social responsiveness; 2) multi-/inter-/transdisciplinarity; and 3) innovation and revitalization.

On 23 August, firing squads executed nine of the 46 inmates on death row at the Miles 2 Prison in the capital, Banjul. President Yaya Jammeh had announced his decision to carry out all the death sentences during his annual televised meeting with Muslim elders at the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. Civil society organisations, AI, the EU and ECOWAS promptly asked for a suspension of the remaining executions, which was granted on 15 September on condition that the country’s crime rate would stop rising. The economy continued to suffer from the European downturn and from the poor harvest of 2011. In April, the government declared a national food crisis and appealed for international support.
