TweetThis! Calls for Papers - Ethnic and Racial Violence

IJCV 3 (2) 2009: Ethnic and Racial Violence
The International Journal of Conflict and Violence invites submissions to a focus section devoted to the topic: ethnic and racial violence. A feature of much of the world’s violence and many of its conflicts are cleavages drawn along ethnic and racial lines. Violence takes the form of both violence against and committed differentially by minority populations in some countries and elsewhere majority populations are more frequently victims or disproportionately perpetrators. Spontaneous or organized ethnic violence is expressed by individuals and small groups and also by large groups, by organizations and obviously by states too. It can arise within a nation state or take the form of a transnational conflict. How can we better understand these conflicts and acts of violence?

Contributions to this issue that address many different forms of ethnic and racial violence from individual criminal violence, including ethnic hate crimes, to forms of collective violence like riots or pogroms up to ethnic civil wars, “ethnic cleansing” and genocide are welcome. We are especially interested in empirical papers that contribute to better comparative understanding. We encourage analyses that are comparative, but contributions may also focus on a single national case. Preference will be given to case studies where the authors highlight how their work betters our understanding in other countries as well. In this issue we will not include studies of transnational conflicts. We define “empirical” very broadly to include ethnographies, field studies, archival work, and of course quantitative methods.

The focus section will be guest-edited by Professor Werner Bergmann (Technical University in Berlin/ berg0154@mailbox.tu-berlin) and Professor Robert Crutchfield (University of Washington/ crutch@u.washington.edu).

Deadline for submissions is May 31, 2009.

For details of manuscript submission see instructions for authors.
