The Committee for the Analysis of Military Operations and Strategy (CAMOS), a cooperating organization of the International Studies Association (ISA) has been allocated two panels at the 2010 ISA Convention in New Orleans, LA (Feb. 17-20 2010).
This year’s convention theme, “Theory vs. Policy? Connecting Scholars and Practitioners”, addresses the issue of trying to bridge the gap between theory and practice and between academics and practitioners. This has always been the core mission of CAMOS in relation to the broad field of strategic and security studies. Thus, CAMOS seeks paper proposals that address the following topics:
• the sources of military effectiveness and force employment in war;
• the causes and effectiveness of intervention policy;
• the origins and effectiveness of terrorism, as well as the sources of terrorist recruitment;
• non-traditional conflict triggers, including refugee flows, environmental scarcity, and NGO involvement in conflict settings; and
• the relationship between coercive and non-coercive strategies in a counterinsurgency or reconstruction environment.
We especially welcome panel or paper proposals that draw on both scholars and practitioners and that have clear policy relevance.
Paper proposals should include the paper titles, a short abstract (500 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 by Friday 29 May 2009 to:
Dr. Sergio Catignani
Assistant Professor in International Security
University of Leiden
Email: sergiocatignani @ gmail.com (If you send your proposal as an attached document, please include your surname and paper title as the document title.)
