CALL FOR PAPERS
NATO and Security of the Southern Gas Corridor
Deadline for proposals: 10 May 2020
Deadline for full papers: 14 June 2020
The Institute for Democracy and Mediation, in cooperation with NATO’s Public Diplomacy Division, is launching a bi-annual security journal to discuss issues related to Albania’s role in NATO and the protection of NATO’s southern flank. We are excited to start a much-needed discussion on Albania’s national security doctrine, its capacities, and the most pressing issues of the Alliance’s southern flank.
Each journal issue will have a general theme and three discussion topics. The theme of the first issue is “NATO and security of Southern Gas Corridor.
” The topics for contribution to the issue are the following:
- Albanian military capabilities and the security of the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline
- Regional military cooperation and energy security in the Balkans
- Cooperation between Turkey and Russia on energy and arms transfers
We invite postgraduate students, academics, researchers, and professionals working in security or defence to contribute to the discussion by submitting original papers in any of the three topics. We strongly encourage submissions from a variety of analytical approaches: security and defence, international relations, sociohistorical, socioeconomic, institutional, organisational, or legislative.
