"After the Fall:Theory and Practice of Post-Intervention Security"
The CSDS Annual Conference, 9-11 March 2006
The Centre for Security and Defence Studies (CSDS) at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, invites paper proposals for a new annual multi-disciplinary conference bringing together scholars, students and practitioners interested in innovative approaches to current debates in conflict and security studies. The theme for this year's conference is the short-term security implications that follow military interventions into foreign states, drawing in particular on lessons from deployments to Somalia and Kosovo and more recently Iraq and Afghanistan.
Proposals for individual papers should include an abstract of no more than 500 words, a brief CV, postal and email addresses, and telephone number. Papers should analyse some aspect of post-intervention security. Specific topics include, but are not limited to, pre-war planning; methods for combating insurgency and the limits of these practices; occupation obligations for interveners; transitional security arrangements between intervening and affected states; post-conflict justice mechanisms; and how political pressures within troop-contributor countries shape mission mandates and objectives.
Graduate students and non-academic practitioners are welcome to submit proposals. Presenters will be asked to assume their own transportation and accommodation costs. The Centre will be providing some but not all conference meals.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is 25 November 2005. Authors will be notified by early January 2006. Final papers are expected by 1 March 2006.
