British Academy Review, Issue 12, January 2009

07 Apr 2016
64

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.
