    • Call for Papers - JRS Special Issue - Security Community Building: Bridging the Theory/Policy Divide

    •  
    • Date: 10 September 2012
      The editors of Journal of Regional Security are welcoming papers that offer novel and theoretically sound understanding of security community building practices.

      During the past decades academic and policy communities, dealing with international politics and security, have significantly parted ways. The goal of the special issue is to help bring the two worlds together in order to widen and deepen the knowledge and practice of security community building. 

      We are specifically interested in papers drawing on the recent “practice turn” in International Relations and Security Studies.

      Manuscripts should be submitted to jrs@fpn.bg.ac.rs by 10 September 2012 at the latest.

      Guidelines for authors can be downloaded here.

       

      Topics:

      - Transfer of knowledge between theory and policy

      - The role of external region-builders

      - Socialization of elites within International Organizations

      - Regional identity and common memories

      - Professions, communities of practice and epistemic communities

      - Background knowledge and cognitive evolution

      - The role of non-state actors

      - Steps toward security community theory

      - Cross-fertilization with other IR or social science theories and concepts
