Two years ago, in the editorial for issue 1 of volume 22, we announced the introduction of a new team of Associate Editors. We are delighted with the valuable contributions our Associate Editors have made to our range of editorial expertise.

We are very pleased to announce the introduction of two new Associate Editors. To add to our focus on legal philosophy, we welcome as Associate Editor Jakob v. H. Holtermann, who is Associate Professor in Legal Philosophy at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen. To similarly strengthen our expertise in the connection between political philosophy and policy issues, we also warmly welcome Kristin Voigt, who is Assistant Professor at the Institute for Health and Social Policy and the Department of Philosophy at McGill University. Kristin’s and Jakob’s profiles also underscore our aim to be a journal that addresses the intersection between moral, legal, and political philosophy and with a special interest in how such perspectives are applied to areas of current public policy and social concern.

At the same time, Emily McTernan is ending her term as Associate Editor. We would like to thank her for her contribution to the journal and wish her all the best for the future. As a replacement for Emily, we are proud to welcome Candice Delmas, who is Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Political Science at Northeastern University. Candice, who will start her term as Associate Editor beginning from May 2018, will further strengthen the journal’s focus on the philosophical reflection on social and civic issues.
