As part of our core mission, we are working to increase specialised insights dedicated to geopolitics, security and geostrategy, responding to the emerging need to analyse global instability factors in post-conflict, developing countries and crisis areas, in order to gather and study cross-regional correlations across continents.
The Call for Papers aims to collect, map and report the expert perspectives of an international group of authors, whose analysis of the chosen topics will provide a comprehensive view of the global context. Following a quality assessment conducted by the partner organisations, the best contributions received will eventually be published as part of the thematic volume citing the respective authors.
