Current Security is an interdisciplinary journal whose aim is to democratize the field of security. The journal seeks to bring academics, practitioners and policymakers’ understanding of the related fields of security and development in sync with those of the public. The journal’s focus is to chronicle the emergence of the dynamic and diverse field of security. It seeks to broaden and deepen security away from state-centric and regime survival tradition to human beings and development. This is in tandem with the 1994 United Nations Development Programme paradigm.
The journal’s interdisciplinary perspective open it to publishing original research on security and development. Security is about people. Development is about meeting peoples’ basic needs. The journal focuses on problems and possibilities, past and present. Where possible, comparisons are made between issues, countries, and continents.
Occasionally, calls for special editions may be issued.
Articles should be based on original research, and they can also be co-authored. The journal will be annual.
Interested persons are invited to submit original articles or book reviews for consideration for publication in the maiden edition of the Journal. The first edition is expected to be out before the end of the year.
All contributions will be peer reviewed.
