2009 International Studies Association Annual Convention Call for Papers:
CAMOS, the Committee for the Analysis of Military Operations and Strategy, invites proposals for papers or panels for the 2009 International Studies Association Annual Convention. The convention will meet in New York City, New York from Sunday February 15 until Wednesday February 18, 2009.
The twin pitfalls of over-predicting and under-predicting change and continuity form the background theme for the 2009 conference. We will look back as well as forward. ISA encourages the submission of panels and papers that help us to better understand the past and anticipate the future in all aspects of the international system. Thus, papers and panels that address key issues of strategy and military operations within this context will be considered.
Specific topics of interest include:
· National security and defense policy-making in an era of growing uncertainty and asymmetry;
· The Future of International Intervention in the 21st Century Security Environment, to include (but not be limited to) the following topical areas and debates:
o Dilemmas, debates and questions relating to the efficacy and conduct of past, present and future Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR) missions in international relations;
o The role of militaries in post-conflict reconstruction and nation-building missions, particularly those carried out within the context of ethno-nationalist civil wars;
o Debates and issues surrounding the future force structure and roles of conventional militaries; (e.g., full-spectrum forces and force designs versus constabulary designs)
As a cooperating organization with ISA, CAMOS is allotted two panels at the 2009 convention.
Paper proposals should include the paper titles, a short abstract (300 words max), and contact information for the author(s). Panel proposals should include the same for each paper, along with a title and abstract for the panel as a whole, and contact information for panel chair and discussant, if included.
Please submit proposals to Dr. Catignani by email by May 13, 2008.
