Call for proposals: Europe Revisited

Call for proposals: Europe Revisited

The editors of the Journal of International Relations and Development invite CIVICA alliance members to propose a forum to reflect on the “Europe Revisited” theme in CIVICA.

Proposals are welcome to relate but need not be limited to the “Europe Revisited” topics. For reference see this page

We are interested in proposals that take an engaged, perhaps critical, but constructive view on any topic within broadly conceived European studies, including through revisionist approaches.

Proposals should include:

  • A 250-word statement including: (a) the overarching purpose of the forum; (b) how the forum relates to the theme "Europe Revisited," even if critically; (c) how it reflects diversity among the institutions and contributors.
  • 150-word abstracts of each contribution


The proposal should include at least four CIVICA members and is aimed at faculty and (early stage) researchers.
External contributors are welcome.

Publication format  

A 2,000-word introduction and between three and six contributions of 3,000 words each.

Deadline for proposals

15 June 2021

Process and timeline

  • The editorial team will make the selection within two weeks after the deadline;
  • Full submissions formatted according to the journal’s guidelines are expected by 30 September 2021;
  • The submissions will be subject to peer review and accepted for publication conditional on any necessary revisions.

The Journal of International Relations and Development is an independent, internationally peer-reviewed journal that presents theoretically informed empirical analyses of current issues in international relations and international political economy, as well as original theoretical and conceptual analyses. It fosters pluralism of theoretical engagement and conveys epistemological, methodological, and thematical openness that originates in the journal’s regional legacy. The Journal of International Relations and Development is a global publication with regional roots, which was established in 1984 to encourage scholarly publications by authors from Central and Eastern Europe. Today the journal welcomes submissions from all scholars without regard to regional affiliation. This is the official journal of the Central and East European International Studies Association (CEEISA).
