2nd CALL FOR PAPERS
Panel 1 “Perspectives of Peace and Statebuilding in Africa”
Coordinator: Dr. Aleksi Ylönen (Peace Research Institute Frankfurt,
Since early 2000s peace- and statebuilding interventions have attracted increasing academic focus. From then on, a number of extensive studies have emerged dealing with different aspects of peace- and statebuilding ranging from more general and theoretical analyses to more specific thematic and case study approaches. Due to the focus and nature of external intervention, a number of cases particularly in Africa, including Liberia, Sierra Leone, and South Sudan, have become emphasized. Some studies have argued that although African states specifically have been subjected to wide-ranging external interventions for a long period of time, peace- and statebuilding provide a distinct, or at least greatly transformed, approach by the external actors.
This panel explores perspectives of peace- and statebuilding broadly defined, including
distinct viewpoints to the processes producing new political and economic realities. It
welcomes contributions from all aspects of peace- and statebuilding, with particular
interest in the interaction between the external protagonists and local actors and forces
as well as impact of these interventions.
Paper proposals must include: a) title; b) abstract (a maximum 1000 characters);
c) a brief profile of the speaker (a maximum 300 characters).
The deadline for proposals is 1 June 2012.
Please send paper proposals for Panel 1 to email@example.com
