Call for Papers
For the June and December 2013 issues of Ubuntu: Journal of Conflict Transformation
Ubuntu: Journal of Conflict Transformation is a refereed bi-annual journal of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa, published by Adonis Abbey, London, in the months of June and December every year. It is brought out as one of the core activities of the Conflict Transformation Programme of the College through the Department of Politics. Papers are invited for the next issue of the Journal to be published in June 2013. Last date for receiving papers for the June issue is 15 April 2013, and for the December issue, 30 September 2013.
Ubuntu stands for humaneness built on the foundations of a relational worldview. The journal serves as a forum for scholars in the field of peace studies who seek to go beyond the paradigm of power and rational choice assumptions to tap on moral and creative human potential to resolve conflicts in a just manner in recognition of the principle of human interrelatedness. All papers ranging between 5000 and 8000 words and falling within the broad scope of the journal are welcome. Each paper received, if suitable, will be sent for double peer review, and published if it meets the requisite standards of scholarship. Papers processed in MS Word can be sent electronically to either of the two editors, Professor Ufo Okeke Uzodike or Professor John S Moolakkattu, as word file attachments accompanied by an abstract of around 150 words and five key words. Their emails are: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
