Academic profile of the journal

Iberoamericana, Nordic Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies is a cross-regional, interdisciplinary, and multi-lingual peer-reviewed academic journal; run by a network of prestigious Nordic research scholars. Iberoamericana is an essential platform for dissemination of both empiri­cal research and normative analysis of topics related to human and environmental security, social cohesion, and governance. With focus on social science research on Latin American and the Caribbean, Iberoamericana covers various themes such as: political systems, democracy, conflict, social policies, economic development, regional integration, social movement and indigenous peoples, environment and society, gender, disasters and policy responses, war and urban security, public health, migrations, human rights and organized crime. The scope of the Journal also varies concerning perspectives of time, since we value both actual issues as well as historical perspectives.

The members of the Editorial Board represent different scholarly traditions. Five editors are political scientists and the remaining editors have a disciplinary background in the fields of development studies, peace studies, gender studies, economic history, sociology, anthropology, economics and environmental planning. Five of the 13 members of the board are women.
