The Kellogg book series with the University of Notre Dame Press focuses on the Institute’s core expertise in democracy and human development. Launched in 1985 with an emphasis on Latin America, the interdisciplinary series now encompasses Africa, Asia, and other developing regions of the world. It includes nearly 75 titles.

We aim to publish high quality scholarship focused primarily on democracy and development. We are also open to publishing on other themes in international studies, such as religion or human rights. We welcome inquiries from authors interested in publishing in the book series. If you have a manuscript you would like to submit, contact former Faculty Fellow Scott Mainwaring ([email protected]), who serves as series editor.
