Climate change, conflict and peace
Under the guest editorship of Dr. Volker Boege, Senior Research Fellow at the Toda Peace Institute, and Dr. Ria Shibata, Research Fellow at the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Otago. Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice invites essays for a special issue on Climate change, conflict and peace.
Climate change is one of the critical global challenges of our times with grave social, economic, political, cultural and environmental implications. We welcome submissions for a special issue that explores the multidimensional and far-reaching challenges of climate change that include political, technical, material, emotional, psychological, cultural and spiritual issues that can generate ripe conditions for conflict. This issue seeks to address the linkages between the effects of climate change, conflict, security and peace. Both case-based empirical-analytical and theoretical-conceptual contributions are welcome. While we imagine the bulk of submissions will come from academics, we also encourage civil society actors and policy makers to also contribute their insights based on their experiences.
General themes that contributors can address in their essays include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Climate change and conflict nexus
- Climate change and peace nexus
- Climate change and peacebuilding
- Climate change and migration, displacement and relocation
- Conflictual dynamics of climate change adaptation and mitigation
- Conflict-sensitive climate change adaptation and mitigation
- Securitisation of climate change policies
- Climate change, state fragility and vulnerability
- Climate change and identity
- Climate change and spirituality
- Climate change, natural disasters and the military
- Climate change and the Pacific Islands/Oceania
