JustSouth Publications

Institute staff and collaborators disseminate their research and analysis and education on Institute core issues of race, poverty, and migration, their interconnections, and Catholic Social Teaching through a variety of publications and reports:

The JustSouth E-News are short essays by JSRI staff or guest writers about JSRI issues published monthly. It also includes recent staff activities, upcoming Institute events, and “action alerts” about pressing social policy matters. View archives »

The JustSouth Quarterly is the principle journal for in-depth research and writing of the Institute staff and collaborators. It reflects our research, analysis and education, as well as content from our periodic conferences and events. View archives »

The JSRI Take Five for Social Justice video series features short interviews with researchers, advocates, and educators from Loyola University New Orleans or elsewhere in the Jesuit world on their cutting-edge social justice-related work. A major goal is to help our JSRI audience gain, in a short amount of time, insight into an important social justice issue and to inspire viewers to learn more about the issue, question their own assumptions about social problems, and/or to take action to address injustices that may be discussed during these presentations.

In addition, the Institute publishes occasional issue papers, the texts of addresses by the staff and colleagues, and JSRI conference documents as free-standing reports to supplement our regular publications. View archives »
