Call for Papers for nº23, "Crisis, Security, Politics", of Relaciones Internacionales Journal
to be published in June 2013.


In recent history, and especially since September 11 2001, new Security Studies perspectives have achieved significant academic success.

We have witnessed theoretical developments, diverging from the dominant American perspectives on national security, in other parts of the world including Europe.
