There's lots going on this month for our journal European Journal of International Security (EJIS). Read on to find out about the latest FirstView articles, a new issue, the EJIS blog, and a call for papers for the BISA 2023 Conference.

New articles and issue

The editorial team of the European Journal of International Security is delighted to announce the publication of EJIS Volume 7 Issue 4. This issue features Morgan-Owen and Gould’s research article on the ‘Politics of future war’, and Gregory’s article entitled ‘Calibrating violence: Body as a weapon of war'. In ‘Women, Peace and Security National Action Plans in anti-gender governments’, Thomson and Whiting ask how the WPS Agenda has survived in Brazil and Poland. Meanwhile, Patel explores the development-security-counterterrorism nexus in ‘Representations of women and gender in DFID’s development-security-counterterrorism nexus’. In their article, Banta and Kaufman explore the implications of integrative pluralism for International Relations theory, whilst Shetty considers visual securitisation in the context of Calais asylum seekers. Finally, Féron and Krause take the case of the Burundian peacebuilding project in their article ‘’Power/resistance: External actors, local agency, and the Burundian peacebuilding project”. 

2023 Conference

Ahead of the BISA 2023 Conference, The European Journal of International Security (EJIS) is looking for paper proposals from early-career/postgraduate research colleagues who are preparing to submit their work to a journal. Deadline for paper proposals: Monday 7 November 2022. Members of the EJIS editorial team will convene the panel(s), and they will act as panel chair and discussant during the conference. In addition, a member of the EJIS team will offer ‘mentor’ support to paper authors outside of the panel, providing feedback on how editors may read the paper before and after they send it to reviewers. There is no obligation to submit your paper to EJIS, but we ask that paper proposals fit the remit of the journal. Please send paper proposals and inquiries by Monday 7 November 2022 to Jason Ralph, Co-Editor EJIS at  j.g.ralph@leeds.ac.uk
