(ISSN 1338-1385)

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Journal of Comparative Politics (JCP) is the semi-annual journal of the Consortium of three Central European universities (University of Trenčin, Slovakia; University of Ljubljana, Slovenia; Alma Mater Europeae – European Center Maribor, Slovenia). The JCP started in 2008 to meet the needs of political scientists throughout the world interested in the advancement of their discipline and in escaping the parochialism threatening the pursuit of knowledge within the confines of a single culture. The journal focuses on the comparison of political cultures of Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, their practical policy, theoretical questions of comparative political science, theoretical and practical questions of the development of civil society and civil policy in this region. JCP retains an “open access” policy and encourages participation and contribution from CEE research and academic communities and from wider international academic communities. JCP invites a variety of submission formats: articles and essays, reviews, working papers, talks and conference papers, responses/rebuttals and commentaries. As well, interdisciplinary ventures, which address, directly or indirectly, issues of political concern are welcome from all sectors of the humanities and social sciences, as long as they are comparative in its essence.

Acceptance of articles is subject to an anonymous refereeing process. Articles submitted to the JCP should be original contributions. If the article is under consideration by another publication, authors should clearly indicate this at the time of submission. Standard length for articles is up to 7,500 words (including notes and references). The articles should begin with indented and italicized summary of up to 150 words, which should describe the main arguments and conclusions of the article; up to five keywords should also be added. The author should provide brief personal details (up to 100 words) including affiliation and e-mail, research interest and recent publications. UK English. Manuscripts written in English should be sent by email to editor, prof. dr. Miro Hacek, miro.hacek@fdv.uni-lj.si. For further instructions on submission of manuscripts, please visit the journal website http://www.jofcp.org. Articles appearing in JCP are abstracted and indexed in JournalSeek, EBSCO, Ulrichsweb, ProQuest, International Bibliography of Social Sciences (IBSS), International Political Science Abstract (IPSA), DOAJ Directory of Open Access Journals, Universal Impact Factor and I2OR Database.

Transformation or Collapse? Politicization and integration in postfunctionalist times

The Amsterdam Centre for Contemporary European Studies
Amesterdam, Netherlands
13 October, 2017 - 14 October, 2017
Application Deadline: 30 April, 2017
Contact: f.nicoli@uva.nl

The Amsterdam Centre for Contemporary European Studies (ACCESS EUROPE) is pleased to announce that the Call for Papers for the International Conference “Transformation or collapse? Politicization and integration in postfunctionalist times” is now open.

In a historical phase when European integration faces multiple simultaneous crises, both exogenous and endogenous, the goal of the conference is twofold. On the one hand, we aim to bring together three generations of scholars of European integration theory. On the other hand, we would like to set up the basis for an edited volume to bring integration theory
further in a collegial way. Several senior scholars of European integration – including Philippe Schmitter, Liesbet Hooghe, Gary Marks, Vivien Schmidt,Hanspeter Kriesi, Frank Schimmelfenning, Markus Jachtenfuchs and Michael Zürn– have confirmed their participation.

The Call for Papers aims to establish two further panels composed primarily of scholars in the early and intermediate phases of their careers. Up to eight papers will be selected for presentation by the conveners. We invite both empirical and theoretical papers dealing with two fundamental conundrums of current European integration: positive versus negative
politicization, and integration versus disintegration. Authors of the selected papers will have their accommodation and travel expenses covered by ACCESS Europe, and their papers will be considered for inclusion in a collective publication (special journal issue or edited volume) resulting from the Conference.

Further information on the conference, including the provisional programme and full abstract of the conference, can be found here:

In order to apply, please send an extended abstract of your proposed paper (1-2 pages), as well as a short bio paragraph including your current
affiliation and position, to:  f.nicoli@uva.nl by April 30, 2017.
