This double issue is my final one as Editor of Labour, Capital and Society (LCS). As many of you know, the journal was founded in 1979. For over 25 years, we have continuously produced some amazing articles and special issues to which scores of important researchers, mainly from the so-called global South and Canada, have contributed. During this entire period, it is important to note that we have successfully competed every three years for the learned journal grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), thus maintaining our scholarly accreditation as judged by our peers. As the founding Editor of LCS, I invited all of authors, who had previously published and supported LCS, to contribute to this special 25th anniversary issue.
