Justice Everywhere is run by a cooperative of political theorists and philosophers with a diverse array of interests. Details of our authors are listed below.

We also collaborate with the Journal of Applied Philosophy (JOAP). JOAP is a unique forum for philosophical research that seeks to make a constructive contribution to problems of practical concern. Open to the expression of diverse viewpoints, it brings the identification, justification, and discussion of values to bear on a broad spectrum of issues in environment, medicine, science, policy, law, politics, economics and education. JOAP publishes in all areas of applied philosophy, and posts accessible summaries of its recent articles on Justice Everywhere.
