The UK political landscape in the 21st century: players, strategies, stakes
Call for Papers Deadline:
The project is to map, in as much detail as possible, the British political landscape in the early 21st century, i.e. to present the players (major, minority, national parties, party factions, trade unions, federations, pressure groups, think tanks, etc.) who, on the electoral and media centre-stage, on its fringe or in the Westminster lobbies, try to impose their agendas and influence the public debate in a way that serves their own purposes. The field of research therefore stretches from the extreme-right to the far-left and includes both registered parties and organisations whose action is mainly political (influencing the elected representatives, mobilizing the citizens, taking an active part in public life outside officially constituted groups, etc.).
Submissions are invited which examine the contemporary British political landscape and enable the readers to have a better understanding of its fabric. For guidance and further information, please go to http://lisa.revues.org/index3921.html
Please send your proposals (maximum one A4 page) together with a short biography to David Haigron (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1st November 2010.
