The Journal of Conflict Transformation and Security (JCTS) provides a platform to analyse conflict transformation and security as processes for managing ‘change’ in a non-violent way to produce equitable outcomes for all parties that are sustainable. A wide range of human security concerns can be tackled by both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ measures, therefore, the Journal’s scope not only covers such security sector reform issues as restructuring security apparatus, reintegration of ex-combatants, clearance of explosive remnants of war and cross-border management, but also the protection of human rights, justice, rule of law and governance.The JCTS explores the view that by addressing conflict transformation and security holistically it is possible to achieve a high level of stability and human security, requiring interventions at both policy and practitioner level. They would include conflict management, negotiated peace agreements, peacekeeping, physical reconstruction, economic recovery, psycho-social support, rebuilding of primary services such as education and health, and enabling social cohesion. A number of other macro-level governance issues from constitution writing to state accountability and human resource management also need to be considered as part of this process of ‘change’.

Therefore, the Editors welcome all submissions under the rubric of Conflict Transformation from a ‘human security’ angle and the preference will be given to articles that address and contribute to important disciplinary and interdisciplinary questions and controversies using case studies, empirical research and comparative analysis. The JCTS particularly welcomes contributions from authors based in the global south and practitioners at policy and field levels.

    Large bombings, only days apart, in Bogota and Derry/Londonderry have put paid to any notions of a simple peace process in either country. These events show that the two very different conflicts display many of the same dynamics. Both countries have seen increasingly fragmented peace processes, with multiple non-state actors and intransient splinter groups vying…

  • The inherent dangers of secrecy in the US foreign policy

    Since the Vietnam War, officials of the United States have increasingly abused the essential democratic safeguards of accountability and an informed citizenry in apparent attempts to protect themselves from being held accountable for their actions.
