CFP: Crisis, Security, Politics: Call for Papers nº23 Relaciones Internacionales Journal
full name / name of organization:
Call for Papers for nº23, “Crisis, Security, Politics”, of Relaciones Internacionales Journal
In recent history, and especially since September 11 2001, new Security Studies perspectives have achieved significant academic success. Despite “security” having continually been present in academic research, throughout the 1990s and the beginning of the 21st century, security has become increasingly visible on the political agenda and in academic debates. We have witnessed theoretical developments, diverging from the dominant American perspectives on national security, in other parts of the world including Europe.
In this context, and considering the topic’s relevance in this period of crisis and political change, there are a series of issues that social scientists focusing on security may deal with. One may analyze security’s relationship with politics by asking —is security the intrinsic objective of politics?—, or on the other hand one may study the multiple meanings that the security question embodies in contemporary societies: What are security’s theoretical aspects? What characteristics do they have? How do they configure spaces, subjects and ends?
Without rejecting the importance of empirical analysis, we specifically call for articles that uncover the theoretical aspects of security questions. We welcome articles from diverse disciplinary vantage points —such as International Relations Theory, Political Philosophy, Conceptual History, etc. — that study security and its relationship with the global.
