Call For Papers
Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA), together with the Centre for the Study of Political Violence (CSPV), now calls for manuscripts for forthcoming special issue on 'political violence, order and justice in world politics', as its Volume 2-2.
Political violence is a ubiquitous phenomenon in world politics. It is a threat, both directly and indirectly, to human dignity and well-being. It takes a form of inter-personal violence as well as of embedded social structure. It goes beyond border, gender, class and culture. In short, it draws a kaleidoscope reflecting human darkness. To draw aspects of it, therefore, is a daunting task, though it is crucial to know what is happening in our planet. Furthermore, aspects of violence in the global context necessitate the counterpart of order and justice. While order stabilises human life, justice is inserted to make the life humane. The kaleidoscope will not be completed unless we have a positive development for restraining violence. After all, to talk about violence, order and justice is to gain deeper understanding about the world.
The study of International Relations (IR) has been especially in a good place to grasp these subjects. Theoretically, realist approach presented ‘timeless wisdom’ while idealists attempted to make breakthrough. Constructivists showed violence, order and justice is possible only through social environment, and critical theorists raised acute criticisms that even order and justice may become another forms of oppression. Such various understanding can be reinforced through a number of cases. Even they will be expanded and enriched through inter-disciplinary collaboration with law, economics, ethics, history, and others. The result thus may be a highly complex picture among violence, order and justice. It may even blur the distinction between the former and the latter two. Having said, nevertheless, the underlying theme would seem to be still coherent – our serious concern towards violence and the aspiration to alleviate the situation.
In this issue, Jindal Journal of International Affairs (JJIA) purports to be the locus of intellectual interaction regarding to the topic. Manuscripts will be welcomed from all sectors including students. All possible contributions will be treated in a peer reviewed manner. Further information will be provided in 'notes for contributors'. The deadline of the submission is 31st October. Email submissions to:firstname.lastname@example.org
