Last year, the Strife Blog published over sixty submissions as well as three dedicated series, across a range of topics dealing with human conflict, broadly defined. Most recently, articles published on the Strife Blog dealt with intelligence oversight in the British Parliament to movements for political participation in West Papua. From pieces focused on localised conflict and from the field reporting, to debates on grand strategy and questions on the new World Order, Strife Blog also publishes interviews with academics, experts, specialists, and artists.
Conflict may be the continuation of politics by other means, but it is so much more than just that. That is why we especially value diverse perspectives on global issues – conflict is deeply unpredictable, so avoiding tunnel vision is crucial to providing relevant analysis. Strife Blog is open to submissions from analytical pieces on current affairs to engagements and reflections on history. We also welcome submissions of book, event, film, and exhibition reviews as well as interviews across all themes related to conflict.
Our articles are between 1200 and 1500 words, with a short bibliography and an image to go with the text. With both readership and contributors spanning both the academic and policy worlds, we engage in both the theoretical and practical. So, whether you are a first-time writer or an experienced veteran, our editorial team is here to help, providing comments and suggestions throughout your article. At Strife, editors do not dictate changes from on high, but rather work alongside you to refine your argument.
If you’re interested, our contact address remains open throughout the year – firstname.lastname@example.org.
For any general questions, you can contact the Managing Editor at email@example.com.
We’re looking forward to your submissions!
