The Editorial Board

The Editor-in-chief, Boris Martin, along with researchers, teachers, and humanitarian practitioners, are members of the Editorial Board who decide on the specific “Focus” themes and on the content of the various sections. The Board also seeks out and contacts potential authors, and verifies that articles are written in compliance with the editorial line.
