Call for Papers: Environment and security in Latin America
In the Latin American region, environmental and natural resource aspects have for a long time played a major part in conflict and security outcomes. Against this background, the Universidad de los Andes and adelphi have published a call for academic papers on the topic of Environment and Security in Latin America to be published in the Journal Colombia Internacional.
Topics for the original manuscripts can include, among others, the relationship between security and environment and natural resources in Latin America, the role of natural resource availability and climate change in conditioning, risking and avoiding conflict, and the peacebuilding potential of environmental issues. Manuscripts submitted for the special edition can be in English, Spanish or Portuguese. The selection of papers will follow a peer review process. Deadline for submissions is 31 March 2013.
Alexander Carius, Managing Director of adelphi, and Angelika Rettberg, Director of the Program on Armed Conflict and Peacebuilding (ConPaz) at the Universidad de los Andes, will be guest editors for the special edition.
