Two Jamia law students start International Journal

It is a matter of great pride that the Foundation for Academia, Innovation & Thought (FAITH), a not-for-profit organisation co-founded by two law students of Faculty of Law, Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), Naseer Husain Jafri and Umair Ahmed Andrabi and Susan B. Anthony Center at the University of Rochester, NY, USA have jointly started a Journal – South Asian Journal of Law, Policy, and Social Research (SAJLPSR).

Volume I, Issue I of the Journal was released on 7th September (Monday) on SSRN (Social Science Research Network), a repository devoted to the rapid dissemination of scholarly research in the social sciences and humanities.

The Journal was scheduled for release last March but it had to be postponed due to the global COVID- 19 outbreak.

Naseer Husain Jafri and Umair Ahmed Andrabi were selected for the University of Rochester’s global exchange program last year to travel to the United States and started the said journal.

The journal is a peer-reviewed, open access legal and social science journal that publishes original and previously unpublished research and aims to create an interdisciplinary research platform to foster prospective solutions to legal and social issues in South Asian countries. The journal also attempts to bring research beyond library shelves by inclusion of art.

The Volume I of the Journal focuses on the theme of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) which is inclusive of physical, sexual, and psychological harm on the basis of gender, in the South Asian region and features research perspectives to GBV in the region along with several exceptional photographs from photographers around South Asia that give an artistic perspective to GBV.

AJK Mass Communication Research Center(AJK-MCRC), JMI is the journal’s official partner for the photography section. Volume I Issue II is due to be released in November this year.

Volume I, Issue I of SAJLPSR has been released online and can be accessed for free at
