Call for papers

The program also issued a new Call for Papers on Environmental Security for African Scholars, co-sponsored by the Strauss Center, the Institute for Security Studies, and the Pew Center on Global Climate Change.

The goal of the Call for Papers is to publish a number of working papers on the links between climate change and security in Africa. The Call for Papers seeks to foster innovative African scholarship on these issues and foster a conversation between academics, practitioners, and policymakers in Africa, the United States, and the international community. Given its physical exposure and the immense challenges of adaptation, Africa is widely understood to be one of the continents most vulnerable to climate change. These effects are not likely to be uniformly distributed, nor are the potential consequences clearly understood. This Call for Papers thus seeks contributions that further global understanding of the likely location of vulnerabilities in Africa, the potential impacts of climate change on Africa’s political stability or security, and/or strategies for addressing these challenges.

Deadline for Submission: Midnight, Greenwich Mean Time, January 1, 2011.
