SAJIA: A Call for Papers

The South African Journal of International Affairs invites article submissions and special issue proposals for our forthcoming volumes.

SAJIA is a policy-oriented, peer-reviewed and interdisciplinary forum for discussion on international affairs affecting Africa in general or South Africa in particular. Published since 1993 under the auspices of the award-winning South African Institute of International Affairs, SAJIA offers original and review articles from varied sources, in four issues annually. SAJIA operates on a constant workflow basis (submission deadlines are rolling), with online publication of accepted articles possible ahead of issue dates.

South African Journal of International Affairs cover

Prospective authors may submit their articles via the SAJIA Scholar One website, as detailed in the instructions for authors. Prospective guest editors are encouraged to contact the Editor, Dr Martha Bridgman, at sajia.editor@saiia.org.za, with a concept note outlining the themed issue and proposed dates.

Articles must be original in content. They should analyse significant policy issues in Africa’s international affairs, with a view to offering constructive solutions. Articles may, inter alia , deal with global/continental governance, multilateralism and political/economic integration, the strengthening of democracy and political party systems in Africa, the protection of human rights, international trade and investment,

the governance of natural resources, security and conflict, migration and refugees, religion and ethnicity, the role of state and non-state actors in international affairs, or the influence of emerging powers on Africa and the world.

We especially encourage submissions from African authors, but welcome submissions from across the globe.
