CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

French on OpenEdition Journals


Cultures & Conflits is a thematically-organized international political sociology quarterly. The journal proposes to analyse different expressions of conflictuality and the socio genesis of the practices of actors at the international level in their professional and cultural environments. It aims at discussing the different episteme at work.

C&C has developed a research agenda that considers the emergence and transformation of transnational elites, the various processes of securitization, as well as issues concerning war, conflict, migration, refugees and human rights.

Journal submissions are open to sociologists, philosophers, political science theorists, historians, anthropologists and geographers, as well as individuals with an institutional or NGO affiliation. This interdisciplinarity enables the development of an alternative perspective on questions of socialization, forms of mobilization, and transitions to violence, whether within or beyond the limits of the state. The journal also explores in depth the transnational dimension of new expressions of violence and goes beyond the analysis of the state as the only explanatory framework of such phenomenon.

In each issue, the participating authors propose potential avenues of research around a specific issue in an effort to renew existing literature on violence and conflictuality. The challenge is to propose a new approach to the analysis and apprehension of international relations.

Cultures & Conflits is notably recognized at the international level. The journal is an active member of the International Political Sociology (IPS) section of the International Studies Association (ISA). Cultures & Conflits is earnestly involved in the predominant French-speaking Political Science, Social Sciences, and Humanities research networks.
