This year, the United Nations declared 29June the ‘International Day of the Tropics’ – a day dedicated to celebrating and raising awareness of the tropical regions of the world. It calls for a ‘tropics lens’ for assessing knowledge and ideas benefitting the tropics. In this issue papers explore notions of the tropics from critical thinkers, explorers of the imagination, and social scientists.
