Strife is an internationally recognized dual-format publication, led by doctoral and graduate researchers based in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London.
We study all aspects of ‘conflict’, combining political, historical, literary, and philosophical approaches to conflict to provide thought-provoking and unique perspectives for our readers. We have over 3.5 million readers a year, with strong engagement from governmental and academic institutions.
Strife is comprised of an academic blog, Strife Blog, as well as the peer-reviewed academic journal, Strife Journal, which is published quarterly. Both platforms, as well as their complementary events such as conferences, issue launches, and presentations, are centred thematically on conflict in all its shapes and forms. We are continuing to grow and expand, and we want you to join us to be a part of the editorial board.
Despite the current COVID-19 pandemic and accompanying challenges, Strife continues to grow, offering our readers regular new scholarship. Starting last year, we have opened up the exciting possibility for postgraduate students, from any country, anywhere in the world, to become a part of the team at Strife. All of our roles are held by volunteers.
Joining Strife presents a unique opportunity to work alongside a diverse group of postgraduate students, building expertise in conflict studies.
