Call For Papers

The Journal of Diplomacy and International Relations
Volume XXIII 2021-2022 Call for Papers
Theme: Revisiting and Rethinking Diplomacy

Continuing a longstanding tradition of providing a platform for representatives across private, public, and nonprofit sectors to analyze contemporary issues in the field of international relations, the Journal of Diplomacy and International Relations is pleased to announce the call for papers for Volume XXIII. This years’ volume will have two overarching themes: revisiting diplomacy processes in failed states and rethinking and revitalizing diplomacy for the future. Volume XXIII will discuss diplomacy in conflict areas, e.g., Afghanistan, Palestine-Israel, Myanmar, and analyze its failures in-depth, in addition to offering insights on the future of diplomacy. More specifically, this issue seeks to serve as a discourse on the failures and the future of diplomacy processes.

Since the turn of the century, we have seen conflicts emerge, stabilize, and deteriorate as the world has shifted towards a period of post-colonization and globalization. In the past two decades, we have seen the rise, fall, and resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan. We have seen the near-century-old conflict in Palestine-Israel and Jammu-Kashmir heighten with civilian lives at stake. Myanmar marched forward with a democratically elected leader yet fell victim to a military coup d’état. The current status of these conflicts, amongst others, pushes us to question the traditional nature of diplomacy and understanding what must be done to reconfigure diplomacy for the next era.

Submissions should be between 3,000 and 6,000 words and are due 31st January 2022. For more information regarding submission requirements and deadlines, please visit our website or forward all inquiries to:
