CLALS Working Paper Series

The CLALS Working Paper Series is intended to provide an opportunity for the timely presentation of ongoing research and scholarship that bridges and catalyzes dialogue between scholarly, policy, and practitioner communities. Contributors to the CLALS Working Paper Series can include CLALS faculty affiliates, research fellows, and partners from beyond AU engaged in ongoing Center projects. 

All CLALS working papers are available for download through the Social Science Research Network (SSRN), where they are incorporated into subject-classified eJournals and widely circulated throughout the scholarly community. SSRN's eJournals currently reach over 400,000 people in approximately 140 different countries. SSRN has been named the Number 1 Open Access Repository in the World by the Ranking Web of World Repositories.
