DEADLINE: August 26, 2019
The International Association for Political Science Students is launching its Call for Papers for the Regional Conference in Sweden. This year, we are partnering with the Stockholm Association of International Affairs (SAIA/UF Stockholm), a youth non-profit association that aims to broaden interest and understanding of international affairs. If you are interested in presenting your paper, you are kindly requested to submit your abstract by 12 August (priority deadline), respectively 26 August 2019 (regular deadline).
In line with IAPSS’ Annual Theme 2019 – “Overcoming Injustice,” the Regional Conference in Stockholm invites you to debate injustice related to climate change.
Climate Justice belongs to the most visible fields in the public sphere and constitutes one of the most pressing political challenges in the 21st century. From the 1960s on, the politics of climate justice have been unfolding with unprecedented scope, connecting more than any other field of research the local and global, and transcending traditional conceptions of responsibility and accountability. Studying climate justice helps deconstruct former narratives of mainstream theories and enhances multifarious analyses which include the role of gender, environment, class, caste, and sovereignty. Since the first UN Scientific Conference in Stockholm in 1972, climate change and its political consequences also constitute a matter of global governance, while politics in the Arctic give an example of how already existing economic and political dynamics will be shaped and transformed.
With this conference theme, IAPSS hopes to encourage students and junior scholars of political science and related disciplines to participate and join this exciting academic discussion.
Given the breadth of the theme on Climate Justice, we welcome contributions focusing on a variety of perspectives. The topics addressed at the conference include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
Climate justice and…
- Human rights & equality
- Disaster risk reduction and crisis management
- Health, food & water security
- Civic action
- Governance (international cooperation, national sovereignty, regionalism, etc.)
- How it’s shaped by economic governance.
Call for Papers
We welcome papers from undergraduate, graduate and PhD students, as well as from junior scholars from different academic perspectives such as comparative politics, international relations, international political economy, political theory, security studies, public policy and administration, regional and area studies as well as political psychology and behaviour studies, and international law, among others.
