SAGE New Journal on Environment and Security (Ashok Swain as Editor-In-Chief)
SAGE Publishing and the Environmental Peacebuilding Association (EnPAx) are partnering to launch a new peer-reviewed journal, Environment and Security – the first peer-reviewed journal dedicated to understanding environment, climate, security, conflict, and peace linkages. The founding Editor-in-Chief will be our Fellow, Dr. Ashok Swain, professor at the Department of Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University, Sweden.
Environment and Security is an interdisciplinary, international, peer-reviewed journal. It seeks to publish innovative research on the intersections between environmental and security issues, and to inspire debates by decision makers and practitioners. The first of the quarterly publications is due to be published in the second half of 2023.
The journal’s title refers to security in a wide sense, encompassing international security, national security, human security, ontological security, and securitization, among others. Environment and Security is designed to provide a global forum for the growing group of scholars in these fields and is committed to theoretical and methodological diversity. It welcomes contributions from a wide range of disciplines, including anthropology, environmental studies, economics, geography, law, peace and conflict, political science, and sociology – as well as insights from practitioners.
Further information on the journal’s Editorial Board and opportunities to contribute will be made available soon.
