General Information

The overall state of the sphere of academic or scholarly publications in Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro and other countries of the Balkan Peninsula, a sphere that belongs to a largely neglected and unconsolidated category. The absence of similar publications is even more present in more specialized areas. To the knowledge of the Research Institute of Development and European Affairs (RIDEA), there are few, if any, academic journals published in the region with particular interest and specialization in the field of development and European and international affairs. Significantly, given the region’s European aspirations and the demands that flow from the integration processes, it is imperative to publish a journal that provides a forum and platform for concentrated, competent and systematic discussion and analysis of the European integration processes and other related, larger European and international affairs.

Call for Papers: Special Issue of the Journal of European and International Affairs (JEIA)

Theme: Contested Statehood and Contested Territories

Submission Deadline: 28 February 2018

The Journal of European and International Affairs (JEIA) is a peer-reviewed international journal published by the Research Institute of Development and European Affairs (RIDEA). It aims to publish cutting-edge articles on European, as well as broader international, affairs, in particular as they relate to the theme of development. The Journal is registered with an ISSN.

The Journal invites scholars, practitioners, policymakers, and research degree students to submit original articles for consideration in a forthcoming special issue on Contested Statehood and Contested Territories. Contestation over legitimate statehood and control of territory has historically been, and continues to be, a major driver of conflict and an impediment to development in many parts of the world, posing enormous challenges for conflict management and for human security.

Understanding the causes, character and consequences of contested statehood, and grappling with fundamental political and moral questions – Who has the right to a state? Can territorial integrity and a right to self-determination be reconciled? – continue to be urgent tasks for scholars, practitioners and policymakers worldwide. The special issue welcomes contributions from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives, and that deal with any geographic region or historical period.

The Journal’s goal is to explore new directions and perspectives that best contribute to the aims of sustainable development, conceived in terms of policies that promote the largest net aggregate of human needs and aspirations in a given context. Authors interested to publish their work in the forthcoming issue should submit their articles in line with or related to the topic of the special issue. However, JEIA remains open to also consider for publication unsolicited articles, essays, and book reviews.


Guidelines for authors:

Articles should be between 5,000 and 8,000 words in length (including notes and bibliography). In addition to the manuscript, authors should include an abstract of not more than 250 words. Manuscripts are accepted for publication with the understanding that their content has not been published previously. If any part of an article or essay has already been published, or is about to be published elsewhere, the author must inform the Journal at the time of submission. Manuscripts are to be submitted in line with the Harvard Style of Referencing.

The deadline for submission of papers is 15 January 2018. The special issue is expected to be published by the end of February 2018.

Instructions for authors

Aims and Scope

The Journal of European and International Affairs is a peer-reviewed journal, published twice a year. It is committed to publishing cutting-edge, provocative and thoughtful articles on European and international affairs, broadly conceived; in particular as they relate to the themes of domestic and international development, European integration processes, the role of international organizations, and processes that pertain to state and institution-building.

The Journal invites scholars, practitioners, policymakers, and research degree students to submit articles, essays, and book reviews for possible publication. Typically, the Journal publishes articles and essays presented in an international symposium on a topic determined by the Institute. However, the Journal remains open to also consider for publication unsolicited articles, essays, and book reviews. The Journal’s goal is to explore new directions and perspectives that best contribute to the aims of sustainable development, conceived in terms of policies that promote the largest net aggregate of human needs and aspirations in a given context.

Manuscripts and References

In terms of form, article manuscripts are to be submitted with both text and footnotes typed and double-spaced. Footnotes should comply with the Harvard Style of Referencing. In addition to the manuscript, authors should include an accurate abstract of not more than 250 words. Manuscripts are accepted for publication with the understanding that their content is unpublished previously. If any part of an article or essay has already been published, or is to be published elsewhere, the author must inform the Journal at the time of submission. The Journal greatly appreciates all submissions and will attempt to notify authors of acceptance or rejection as quickly as possible.
