Call for applications - MA Peace and Development, Leeds UK.

Would you like to study the links between Peace and Development on an innovative and energetic MA?

We are still accepting applications to the MA Peace and Development at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK starting September 2014.

Study an integrated MA in which you will critically evaluate how states, the UN, NGOs and civil society work through an international system to address global challenges of poverty, violence, inequality and environmental destruction.

Over the course you will focus on the weaving together of theory and practice which help us understand the causes of poverty and violence, how national and international systems deal with violence and poverty, and what methods are brought together to build peace and improve livelihoods. 

The international group of students on the MA are typically involved in NGO's, Government, military, research and policy work. The course involves a practical element by including case studies and guest lectures throughout the modules, but includes a core module on project and programme management with tools used by international agencies and funders.

The MA taught curriculum are supported by guest lectures, expert panels, trips and student forums which bring new research, issues and debates with all the students and PhD researchers.

In November 2014 you will be able to join in the activities and events during the PAGe Festival.

For more information about the MA Peace and Development please contact me

Dr Rachel Julian, Course Leader, MA Peace and Development r.julian(at)leedsmet.ac.uk

Call for Papers—Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change

Call for Papers—Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change

"Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change," an annual peer-reviewed volume of research, invites submissions for Volume 38 of the series. This volume will be non-thematic, i.e. submissions appropriate to any of the three broad foci reflected in the Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change (RSMCC) series title will be considered.


RSMCC is a fully peer-reviewed series of original research that has been published annually for over 35 years. We continue to publish the work of many of the leading scholars in social movements, social change, nonviolent action, and peace and conflict studies.

Although RSMCC enjoys a wide library subscription base for the book versions, all volumes are published not only in book form but are also available online through Emerald Social Science eBook Series Collection via subscribing libraries. This ensures wider distribution and easier access to your scholarship while maintaining the book series at the same time.

To be considered for inclusion in Volume 38, papers must arrive by September 7, 2014.  Earlier submissions are especially welcomed. Decisions are generally made within 8-12 weeks.

Send submission as a WORD document attached to an email to Patrick Coy, RSMCC editor, at pcoy(at)kent.edu. For initial submissions, any standard social science in-text citation and bibliographic system is acceptable. Remove all self-references in the text and in the bibliography. Word counts should generally not exceed 12,000 words, inclusive of supplemental materials (abstract, tables, bibliography, etc.). Include the paper's title and an unstructured abstract on the first page of the text itself. Send a second file that contains the article title, the unstructured abstract, and full contact information for all authors.
