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'. Six articles in this issue are available in Open Access.
