Conceptualisations of Violence

The AFLJ Editorial Board welcomes papers for the upcoming AFLJ Special Issue on ‘Conceptualisations of Violence’. The Special Issue seeks to challenge and expand on prevailing legal conceptualisations of ‘violence’ (for example, as predominately physical and masculine or state-based), with a focus on innovative scholarship that develops concepts such as structural violence, speech as violence, spiritual violence, and technological violence, as well as that complicates the legal categorisation of related concepts such as abuse, harm, and exploitation. We are seeking contributions from authors applying critical theoretical frameworks and a combination of doctrinal and interdisciplinary methodologies to pressing socio-legal issues.

Submission Instructions

Please submit papers of 8,000-10,000 words to [email protected] by 15 November 2021. The Special Issue will be published in June 2022.
