About Us
Welcome to our website.

Southbound is an independent scholarly publishing house specialising on issues relating to participatory information and communication processes in development.

Our authors come from both the South and the North. They share with us in our publications their many years of experience across many disciplines of action and research. Our books present indepth reflections and analysis of their work carried out in Africa, the Asia Pacific, the Americas, the Arab Region, and Europe.

Southbound has adopted a participatory approach in our work and we copublish our titles with other publishing houses or organizations working in development. We are delighted that we have been able to collaborate in this way with colleagues from civil society organizations, research groups, and international development agencies from around the world.

Our books have also been translated and published by colleagues in various countries thereby extending the reach of the work of our authors. Some of our titles have been versioned in Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Chinese, French, Hindi, Japanese, and Spanish.

Southbound was awarded The 2008 Communication and Social Change Award.
