The Global Critical Realist Community

The International Association for Critical Realism, IACR is the global academic society for critical realism, which organises an annual conference and publishes the flagship Journal of Critical Realism. JCR welcomes submissions from scholars in all disciplines and at all stages of their career.

The Centre for Critical Realism: Founded by Roy Bhaskar in 1996, the CCR was responsible for establishing IACR and the journal Alethia, the precursor of the JCR. It continues today as the editorial board of the Routledge Critical Realism book series. We welcome new book proposals. CCR also works to develop the global digital presence of critical realism, including maintaining this web site.
