This issue of Socioweb is the second English language edition
Socioweb provides a window for presenting current research into topics that span the range of questions examined with the social sciences and public policy making.
As the winds of autumn begin to gather and the harvest season approaches, we have a veritable feast of knowledge to share with you. While the focus in this issue is on showcasing some of the state-of-the-art social science research under-taken within the Institute of Sociology: all of the themes addressed here form part of more general debates vexing the minds of the great and the good. It is the sincere hope of both this month’s contributors, and the editorial board of Socioweb that you will find something of interest in the articles contained in this issue.
