Call for Submissions: Peacebuilding journal. Deadline: Rolling.
Peacebuilding is an international, peer-reviewed journal publishing high-quality, original research.
Peacebuilding accepts the following types of article: Original articles, Review Articles, and submissions under the “Beyond the Metropole” section. The goal of this section is to promote voices who speak from positions of marginalisation, including (but not limited to) perspectives emanating from the global south, engaging with decoloniality, or affected by censorship and other forms of silencing and underrepresentation. Contributors are not limited to academics, rather the journal actively encourages activists, practitioners and community representatives (such as elders, curators, innovators) to contribute to “Beyond the Metropole.”
Conceptual innovation and ideas that lead us to challenge our ideas of peace, power and justice are particularly encouraged. Acknowledging the discipline’s tendency to focus on accessible global spaces (“metropoles”), the section features innovative, unorthodox and marginalised ideas that are often overlooked in the discipline. Providing an opportunity to take account of the weaknesses of Peace and Conflict Studies, which has sometimes aligned with power, spoken primarily from European and North American perspectives, or “normalised” its core ideas, this section provides a series of encounters with a different set of ideas about peace in the broadest sense. It is particularly interested in insights about the workings of power in relation to peace, or the various challenges and expressions of resistance against it, from positions where such power is most acutely felt.
