    • CfP: Culture and Security Sector Reform

    •  
    • Date: 02 February 2009
      Political, Strategic and Military Culture in Transitional States

      The aim of the conference is to explore the linkages between political, strategic and military culture in post-Communist states, and in particular in the Western Balkans. In doing so, it will seek to bridge the gap between structure and culture and offer to the academic and policy communities in the Western Balkans a better understanding of the salience of political, military and strategic cultures in the process of SSR. With this aim, we seek contributions that will address the issues of culture and SSR. The topics include, but are not limited to:

      - Theoretical approaches to the study of political, strategic and military culture

      - Political culture in the Western Balkans, comparatively and individual countries

      - The transformation of military culture in post-Communist states

      - The impact of Euro-Atlantic integration processes on strategic and military culture

      - Factors influencing culture in individual states.

      - The impact of culture on the Security Sector Reform in post-conflict and post-authoritarian countries.

      - The role of military education in SSR

      Paper proposals and filled application forms should be written in English and submitted by e-mail to office@ccmr-bg.org by 15 March 2009 at the latest. Paper proposals should include the name of the proposer, title of the paper and a 200-300 word abstract. In case of acceptance, the full paper should be sent to the organizers by 3 May 2009. Also, if you are interested to attend the conference, without presenting your paper, please send us a short motivation letter together with your CV to the same e-mail address.
