Call For Papers

Theme: Contemporary Issues in Security and Intelligence

As we head toward the third decade of the 21st century, a wide array of geopolitical tremors are causing dramatic shifts in the security and intelligence landscape. The growth of the Islamic State in the Levant and in Iraq highlights the dangerous internationalization of the ongoing Syrian civil war. Meanwhile, Libya appears to be heading toward a new civil conflict, while sub-Saharan Africa is experiencing an Ebola pandemic, which only adds to the insecurity posed by militant groups such as Boko Haram in Nigeria, the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda, and al-Shabaab in Somalia. As Pakistan’s political instability continues to cause concern both domestically and internationally, a new al-Qaeda branch has been formed in India. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Donbass region has become the latest battleground in what some say is a new cold war between East and West. All of the above is taking place within a wider framework of challenges in the areas of climate, economics, and cybersecurity, among others. For its fall 2014 issue, the Security and Intelligence Studies Journal calls on interested authors to explore the challenges posed by these and other ongoing issues to security and intelligence organizations. Authors are also urged to examine contemporary challenges from a historical viewpoint, with an eye to recent developments or proposed changes in the field of security and intelligence.

Deadline for submissions: December 31
