Race & Social Inequity

SSRN’s Race & Social Inequity hub highlights early-stage research related to systemic racism, racial violence, law enforcement reform, and social justice movements. This hub presents curated insights from many disciplines that might inform the ongoing conversation about race and culture that was triggered by the murder of George Floyd and subsequent global protests. It is our hope that these insights from fields of study such as criminal justice, anthropology, political science and philosophy will help eradicate racism and bring about lasting change. It is important to note that these papers have not been edited or benefited from the pivotal role of peer-review, which validates and improves the quality of final published journal articles.


SSRN, Elsevier’s world-leading platform devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of early-stage research, is committed to advancing societal progress through quality knowledge and education. Research on SSRN is free to download and upload.
