Australia"Climate, Crisis and Change" Call for Papers

Guest Editor: Joanna Siekiera, Ph.D

The 2020 winter IS volume will focus on the multiple crises that the world changes and their management from the perspective of the Pacific studies.

The editorial board invites submissions that present both multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research from within international relations, public affairs, communication, anthropology, social and political geography, cultural studies and mass media studies, but focus on Australia and the Pacific Studies in general.

  • crisis and environmental change
  • groups at risk: marginalisation in the time of crisis
  • trauma and resilience
  • conflict resolution
